Preparation of lemon juice with mint (mint lemonade)
- Wash and clean the mint leaves.
- Mix all our ingredients together and grind them all in a mixer (juicer) or food processor.
- Sieve it to a bowl.
- Taste the sweetness and add more sugar if needed.
- Serve it immediately poured over ice in tall glasses.
- Garnish with lemon and lime slices.
Though the color looks deep green, dont get scared :). Its as refreshing as it looks. Don’t forget to serve it immediately. Because the more you keep this, the more the color fades, sometimes turning a more muddy brown that does not look so appetizing.
