Homemade Honey Lemonade with Fresh Mint recipe

Jun 20, 2017 | Cocktails

Most homemade lemonade recipes call for cups of white sugar, but I prefer the simplicity of this honey-sweetened version. I love the idea of using raw, organic honey for its anti-inflammatory effects, lemons for the vitamin C and fresh mint for its antioxidants. Of course, many of the adults mixed this with some booze. I can tell you, from my experience and reviews from others, that this lemonade pairs very well with either vodka or gin, juuuust in case you want to spice things up a bit!

INGREDIENTS:

250 g. honey, raw honey recommended 500 ml freshly squeezed lemon juice, seeds removed 2 lemons, sliced 1.5 liters of water 100 g. mint leaves Ice cubes

INSTRUCTIONS:

If you are using fresh lemons or limes, be sure to wash them well so any dirt/residue doesn’t end up in your juice. Don’t have fresh lemons? No worries. You can use bottled lemon juice instead–just be sure to pick a quality brand that’s 100% juice, without extra junk. This recipe isn’t super-sugary sweet, but you can add more honey if you need to.
Use your hands, a lemon reamer, or the gadget of your choice to juice the lemons. Pick out any seeds and discard them. You can also strain the pulp if you’d prefer, I don’t bother.
Combine the lemon juice with honey in a large pitcher. Slice lemons and add to pitcher. Remove mint leaves from stem, break the leaves to release the aroma further and add to pitcher. The addition of mint is absolutely divine. It transforms the Lemonade from ordinary to something incredible. Now, add the water and stir.
Add the ice and you will have a beautiful Honey Lemonade! The longer the Mint Lemonade stands, the more flavorful it becomes. Keep a pitcher of Mint Lemonade in your refrigerator and you will make your family very happy this summer. Do you have a favorite Summer drink?
