Lemon Mint Cooler

I know I have been doing a series on Chutneys but I thought this lemon mint cooler is a need of the hour recipe as it is ridiculously hot here and the excessive heat wave in California only seems to get worse! This drink is a regular in our house and we love how the freshness of mint leaves pair perfectly well with the tartness of lemons. Adding a dash of ginger to this awakens your senses and keeps you feeling refreshed all through the day! Enjoy this delicious beverage and let us know how you like it!

Ingredients:

  • Juice of 5 lemons – about 1 cup of juice 
  • Water – 5 cups 
  • Sugar – ½ cup + ¼ cup  
  • Pinch of salt 
  • Ginger – 2 inch piece or more 
  • Mint leaves – ½ cup packed  

Instructions:

  1. In a large pitcher, Mix together the lemon juice, ½ cup sugar and water until the sugar is well incorporated. (Or you can make sugar syrup and add it to the lemon juice)
  2. In a blender, add in the ginger, mint leaves, ¼ cup sugar and a small quantity of the lemon juice. Blend well until no chunks are left. 
  3. Add this mixture to the lemon juice with a pinch of salt. Combine well. Enjoy immediately with ice cubes or refrigerate until ready to serve!
