Mint (y) Lemonade



Yum


Living in Doha i cant be complaining about the climate here but this summer has been really scorching...
Today temperature was 49.5 degrees... which made me look around to cool, basically i love mint in almost anything and everything so it has been simple for me to induce it into almost every drink i consume... let it be mint infused water or mint ice tea or mint chaas/ buttermilk.
I have mint growing in abundance in my backyard so it has become much more simpler to make these refreshing drinks with freshly plucked mint leaves...
Atlast i came up with this minty lemonade recipe with very little or no sugar recipe... as i have planned to consume this drink almost everyday i thought of starting it without sugar and to my surprise it was awesome...
To ward off the thirst and dehydration, I have been making batch after batch of this sugar-free, mint-infused lemonade. It’s simple as can be, but in the heat one hardly has the energy for anything more elaborate, and this is a delightfully refreshing and tasty beverage to tinkle your ice cubes in.
After making todays batch i thought of clicking some pictures to share my freshness with my blog readers too...
It was kinda windy today and that led the photo-shoot to a disaster...



Lets cool...



Ingredients

1 whole lemon juiced
15 fresh mint leaves
1 liter cold water
1/4 tsp salt

                                             OR
Use a stick blender and blend everything.

Your good to go... enjoy the refreshing taste of the minty lemon juice this summer and keep yourself cool...
