Due to globalization, few ingredients that were once considered exotic still are.
Mint was considered very exotic and almost exclusive to Arab and North African cuisine.
This lemon-mint refresher is a typical drink in the Middle East.
The color and amazing flavor is completely natural, and no dye or artificial essences are added.
If we want to bring it close to the English language, I suppose we could call it mint lemonade although lemonade seems to be the poor man’s alternative to this wonderful drink.If you have limes abundantly available, I would highly recommend replacing them for the lemons in the recipe.
4 cups cold water
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
6 Tbsp sugar
In a blender, place all the ingredients and blend for a good 5 minutes until the sugar is dissolved and the mint is broken down.
