I love having fresh mint in my back yard to use for great drinks like this. Try making this tasty Mint Lemonade.
This lemonade recipe makes for a refreshing non-alcoholic cooler on warm days and a grown-up alternative to cocktails on summer nights.
Recipe from the BBC blog.
- Place the mint leaves into a tea towel and bruise with a rolling pin.
- Add the mint to a pitcher, with the lemon juice and zest and sugar cane syrup.
- Top up with sparkling water. Mix the cocktail well and add more sugar cane syrup, to taste.
Chill in the fridge.
