My brother Jeff recently visited the country of Jordan and was introduced to a lemon juice drink speckled with mint. It’s considered a sipping drink as it’s pretty strong and flavorful. He loved it so much that he came up with his own recipe for Mint Lemonade and he’s sharing it with all of us.
Recipe for Mint Lemonade:
- 4 cups water
- 2 1/2 cups fresh squeezed lemon juice (8-10 lemons)
- 1/4 cup finely diced mint
- 1 cup sugar
First, prepare your mint. My brother likes to de-vein the mint leaf, so it doesn’t taste too earthy, then dices it up super fine.
Then squeeze your fresh lemons. I highly suggest an automatic lemon squeezer, making the process of squeezing 10 lemons a snap.
Then add your water and sugar and blend. I love these blenders with spouts, I’m going to have to get one as I’ll be making this tasty drink a lot.
Now start sipping! The blend of lemon and mint is delicous. I also love the green flecks of mint that come out. You can strain the mint if you don’t want it to show up, but I think it makes the drink all the more fancy. This is one of my new favorite drinks. I love all things sour and this lemony drink fits right in. Thanks, Jeff, for sharing your yummy creation.
