Fresh lemonade with spearmint

You will need:

–          1 1/2  cup of white sugar

–          2 cups of water to dissolve the sugar

–          3 cups brewed spearmint (preferably dry mint, not fresh)

–          2 cups lemon juice (you will use about 10 lemons)

–          4-5 cups of water

In a small pot mix the sugar and the 2 cups of water until the sugar is dissolved. Set aside and let it chill for a while. In the meantime in another pot, boil the spearmint tea and also set aside to chill. Squeeze the lemons and then mix all the ingredients in a jug and place it in the fridge for at least an hour.It is an ideal refreshment for those hot summer afternoons in the garden!

TIP: When you serve it you can decorate it with fresh spearmint leaves.

 

YOU CAN ALSO USE MINT INSTEAD OF SPEARMINT.
