Teta’s Minted Lemonade

If I had a garden with a white fence, a bed of flowers and a pergola, I would spend a lazy Sunday afternoon there and have a glass of minted lemonade, the minted lemonade that my teta (grandma) used to prepare for us grandkids every time we visited her. In reality I don’t have a garden and my teta doesn’t live where I do, but I could try putting together a jug of minted lemonade! And I did just that!  The result? This jug that was gobbled down before I could take proper pictures of it!



– 1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
– 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
– 6 cups cold water
– 16 Tbsp of sugar
– 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
– 2 Tbsp rose water

Combine the lime juice, lemon juice and mint in a blender. Blend to shred the mint leaves. In the jug that you’ll be serving with, place the cold water and sugar and stir well. When the sugar has dissolved, pour the lemon juices with the mint into the jug and add the rose water. Stir well. Serve chilled.
NOTE: Sugar does not dissolve well in lemon juice, so make sure you dissolve the sugar in water before adding the lemon juice.

  1. One of my favourite drinks, perfect in a hot sunny day. But now all I can think of is hot beverage, hot chocolate, a coffee, an infusion, in this very very cold day.
