Why is Mint Lemonade a life saver? Because Summer is different in UAE (where I am from.) The heat is unbearable, not matter what you do. going to the beach is out of the question, you don’t want your brain to boil under that extremely hot sun!

Refreshing Mint Lemonade.

Having Ice cream is a good idea, but too much of it will increase something else, my weight! Bad idea.
 
Let’s play safe and smart this summer, let’s not provoke the scale, let’s keep our waist line happy and drink mint lemonade.

I have used Lemon Syrup in this recipe.

  • Few cubes of ice
Instructions
  1. Pour 1 cup water at room temperature in the pitcher.
  2. Add the syrup to the water and blend well.
  3. Pound the mint leaves with the back of a spoon, this will bring out the oil in the mint.
  4. Put the mint leaves in the pitcher, pour the 3 cups cold water.
  5. Stir well. Add the lemon slices and keep in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  6. Fill your glass with ice, pour this refreshing lemonade, and enjoy.
 

*If you want to further refrigerate this drink remove the mint leaves. If the leaves stay longer in the drink, the lemonade will taste bitter and the leaves will get darker in color.
