Random Recipe: Minted Lemonade
Thursday, August 18th, 2022
A recipe made of 4 ingredients, and to your own taste!
You will need:
- a pitcher
- boiling water
- fresh mint
- fresh lemons
Make mint tea! Pour boiling water over washed fresh mint and steep for 5-7 minutes. Longer goes stronger, but much over 7 minutes and you’re adding flavors you probably don’t want.
Filter out the mint and then pour the tea into your pitcher.
Add the sugar to taste, keeping in mind that you’ll be adding a lot of lemon juice later. You want very sweet, minty tea. Cool it down.
Add lemon juice to taste and drink up!
For reference, I added 1/4 cup of sugar to 4 cups of tea, and the juice of 3 lemons. It could maybe have used a fourth for real tartness. I used a bundle of mint from our farmshare, and everything else was just guesswork and experimentation.
It’s pretty tasty, though.
