Stay cool: summertime cool mint lemonade

By July 5, 2016Recipes

Since it’s anything but cool outside, we were super excited to try this summertime cool mint lemonade. This recipe takes 5 minutes to make, has low sugar and will make you think you’re sitting on the beach in Mexico.

Prep time: 5 minutes
Serves:
4-6 drinks

INGREDIENTS:

  • 6 lemons
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 4½ to 6½ cups cold water
  • 30-40 mint leaves
  • Ice cubes

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Put sugar along with ½ cup water in a small pot and cook on low until the sugar has dissolved (1 minute). Let cool for a few minutes.
  2. Juice the lemons and get rid of the seeds. Add the lemon juice to a pitcher and add 4 cups of water.
  3. Add sugar syrup to the pitcher and mix well.
  4. Add more water or plenty of ice cubes if you find the lemonade too strong.
  5. Put 6-10 mint leaves into each cup and muddle for a few seconds using a pestle.
  6. Add a little lemonade and muddle for a few more seconds.
  7. Finish this lemonade recipe by filling each glass ¾ full and adding a few ice cubes.
