Summer will be here before you know it, and summer brings the heat. There are many ways to stay cool and refreshed during the warm months of summer, including make a cool and refreshing drink. If you are looking for a refreshing drink to make this upcoming season, then try this recipe for Mint Lemonade from BRIT+CO.

When Life Gives You Lemons

When life gives you lemons, you should make limonana, which is what this particular mint lemonade recipe is called because it is actually a Lebanese lemonade. While many lemonade recipes simply squeeze the lemons, the technique implemented in this recipe uses sugar, muddler, and time to create a strong concentrated lemon syrup.

Making the Mint Lemonade

The mint lemonade or limonana is made by taking a half cup of the lemon syrup, a fourth cup of water, several mint leaves, a fourth teaspoon of orange blossom water, and just a dash of rose water. You will add all of those ingredients into a blender and blend on high. The mint leaves should be very fine, and the mint will actually turn the lemonade green. This will make a glass of the mint lemonade; so if you are wanting to make a picture of lemonade, then you will have double up or even triple up on the ingredients to make enough for everyone.
