Homemade lemonade with mint and lemon is a delicious, budget-friendly beverage that will save you from the sweltering summer heat, quench your thirst, and pleasantly invigorate you in 90-degree weather.

When the temperature gets too high, the last thing you want to do is stand in front of the stove. Therefore, it is delightful that this recipe does not involve heating anything up. Take lemons and ice out of the freezer, then grate, mix, shake, and enjoy!

Steps

1
Done

Pop two lemons in the freezer. Once frozen, grate them along with the zest.

2
Done

Transfer the grated lemons to a 5-quart container, add sugar, and cover with water.

3
Done

Shake the contents of the container well and let it sit for at least 2 hours.

4
Done

Separate the mint leaves from the stems, cut the remaining lemon into wedges. Place a couple of lemon wedges, ice, and mint in a pitcher.

5
Done

Strain the lemonade, then pour it over the mint and lemon wedges. Refrigerate and serve.

To keep mint fresh longer, wrap it in a damp towel, place it in a plastic bag, and pop it in the fridge. When stored this way, mint retains its freshness and aroma for up to 2 weeks. Enjoy the refreshing lemon and mint lemonade, and don't forget to share the recipe with your friends!

I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.

excellent post, very informative. I wonder why the opposite specialists of this sector don’t understand this. You must continue your writing. I am sure, you have a great readers’ base already!

A fascinating discussion is worth comment. I believe that you should
write more on this subject matter, it may
not be a taboo subject but generally people don’t discuss such subjects.
To the next! Kind regards!!
