So about a year ago I took a wonderful Middle eastern cooking class with Key2Spain (http://www.key2spain.com). A couple days later I hosted an INC coffee and served the Mint Lemonade. Since then I have been promising to share the recipe ….. so today is the day!
1/3 cup sugar
2 1/2 water
3/4 cup lemon juice (freshly squeezed is the best)
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
- On stove, combine sugar and 1/4 cup water. Bring to a boil. Stir until sugar has dissolved completely. Remove from heat and let cool completely.
- Combine syrup (from step 1), remaining water, lemon juice and mint in a blender. Blend on high until mixture in completely combined and liquefied.
- Serve over ice (if there are still large pieces of mint leaves you may want to strain them out).
