Miss Frugal made me some homemade mint lemonade last week and it was absolutely delicious!
We’re going to try and make it again next week but using honey instead of sugar so I’ll let you know how we get on with that if it’s a success.
Homemade Mint Lemonade
75ml boiling water
About a litre cold water
Fresh mint to taste
Squeeze as much juice as you can from your lemons and strain it so there’s no pips or bits in it.
In the meantime, pour the boiling water over the sugar in a jug and stir quickly until all of the sugar has dissolved.
Pour your strained lemon juice in the container you’re going to use to store them lemon (we used a big glass bottle) and top up with some of the cold water.
Add your sugar syrup mix and then the rest of your cold water.
There’s your basic lemonade mix!
To make mint lemonade, just tear up a few mint leaves and add to the bottle before popping it in the fridge for a couple of hours to let the flavours mix before serving over ice ideally.
Homemade blueberry juice is just as easy to make and almost as nice to drink – you just add blueberries instead of mint although rather than adding them whole like you really should, we thought we’d blend ours in the blender with a little water before we added it. It was still delicious but it was definitely more blueberry than lemonade flavour doing it our way.
Homemade lemonade is our new favourite drink for the Summer.
