Homemade Mint Lemonade

Maybe because it’s summer. Maybe because it’s finally sunny in San Diego. Maybe because I’m really looking forward to our trip to Austin in October. Maybe because I love lemons…and mint.

Mint Lemonade

For whatever reason, I really wanted some homemade lemonade.

Some homemade mint lemonade!

Mint Lemonade

For me, homemade lemonade makes me think of front porches and hot days, of sweet children and parades and of, well, summer.

The addition of mint makes this lemonade one refreshing, cool and sweet drink.

I toyed with the idea of making this drink into a cocktail by adding some Vodka or Tequila, but it was just too good the way it was. Fresh. Clean. Pure.

Happy Summer!

Ingredients
For the simple honey syrup:
  • 1/2 cup raw honey
  • 2 cups water
For the lemonade:
  • 6 cups water
  • 2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice about 6-8 lemons
  • 1/2 cup fresh whole mint leaves
Instructions
  1. Make a simple honey syrup by combining raw honey and 2 cups water in a saucepan over medium-high heat until honey is dissolved and then let cool.

  2. Pour lemon juice and remaining 4 cups water in a large pitcher. Add 1 cup of the simple honey syrup and taste. Gradually add more simple syrup to reach desired sweetness. Stir in mint leaves and refrigerate for 1 hour. Serve over ice.

  3. If you don't finish the lemonade the first day, I recommend discarding the mint leaves because they will lose their minty freshness and turn brown.

  1. constantly i used to read smaller articles which also clear their motive, and that is also happening with this piece of writing which I am reading at this time.

  2. I love making homemade lemonade in the summer. Ive never thought of adding mint to it, but you can bet that this year will find me doing just that.
