Refreshing, cool & so good! This mint lemonade is a twist on a classic recipe. Full of fresh chopped mint it is a cool delightful beverage for any day of the week.
As a kid, summertime always meant Mom’s Lemonade. Homemade with simply lemons, water and sugar and with the perfect ratio of all ingredients to make it not too sweet and not too sour.
This recipe adds some fresh mint to the mix. The mint adds just a subtle layer of flavor and it pairs so lovely with the lemons.
Here’s the recipe:
Fresh Mint Lemonade
- 5-6 lemons (juiced)
- 1/2 c fresh mint (finely chopped)
- 1.5 c white sugar
- 1.5 L water
Juice the lemons and pour the juice into a measuring cup.
Add the sugar to the lemon juice and stir vigorously to make a “lemony slurry.”
Pour the lemon and sugar mixture into a pitcher of water (half filled).
Finely chop the fresh mint.
Stir well with a wooden spoon and then add the remaining water to fill the pitcher.
Add the fresh chopped mint on top and stir again.
Garnish with a few lemon slices.
Serve & Enjoy!
