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

Directions:

  1. 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.
  2. Combine syrup (from step 1), remaining water, lemon juice and mint in a blender. Blend on high until mixture in completely combined and liquefied.
  3. Serve over ice (if there are still large pieces of mint leaves you may want to strain them out).
