We’re still in May, but in Spain, it already feels like summer. This is the time of the year when my house smells like mint, and it’s so refreshing that I make it every two or three days.
- 10 lemons
- 2 bunches of mint
- 1 C of granulated sugar (U.S. measurement)
- 1,5 l / 50 oz water (U.S. measurement)
This will make you 2 l / 68 oz of lemonade, approximately.
1.- Juice 9 lemons and quarter the remaining one.
2.- Separate the leaves from the stems and wash the leaves well.
3.- Put all the ingredients in a food processor (except water) and blend everything into a puree. When you think you’ve finished… blend more! :) The more you blend the leaves, the tastier it’ll be.
4.- Strain through a colander, add the water, mix well and add more sugar if necessary.
Chill well before serving, relax and enjoy this refreshing drink.
