- 1 litre of water
- 3 lemons
- 2 tbsp caster sugar
- 3 sprigs of mint
Start by juicing two of your lemons into a large jug and mixing with two-thirds of the sugar and about have of your mint leaves. Use the back of a wooden or silicon spoon to gently muddle the lime and disolve some of the sugar in the juice.
Add 200ml of the water and stir to disolve the rest of the sugar. Dilute with the remaining water and taste.
Slice the remaining lemon and add to the jug along with the remaining mint sprig. Chill in the fridge for an hour. Serve with ice and slices of fresh lemon.
- The longer you leave the lemon and mint in the jug chilling, the stronger this drink will be.
- This recipe is for quite a sharp lemonade, if you like yours sweeter, add a little more sugar.
