Today is National Hammock Day and what better way to celebrate than with a recipe that goes hand-in-hand with this favourite summer activity: lemonade! We’ve decided to include a refreshing minty twist on this classic beverage.
This mint lemonade recipe makes for a refreshing non-alcoholic cooler on warm days and a grown-up alternative to cocktails on summer nights.
- Place the mint leaves into a tea towel and bruise with a rolling pin.
- Add the mint to a pitcher, with the lemon juice and zest and sugar cane syrup.
- Top up with sparkling water. Mix the cocktail well and add more sugar cane syrup, to taste.
- Chill in the fridge.
