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.

Ingredients

  • large handful fresh mint, leaves picked

  • 6 lemons, juice and zest of 3

  • 3 tbsp sugar cane syrup

  • sparkling mineral water, to top up

Preparation method

  1. Place the mint leaves into a tea towel and bruise with a rolling pin.
  2. Add the mint to a pitcher, with the lemon juice and zest and sugar cane syrup.
  3. Top up with sparkling water. Mix the cocktail well and add more sugar cane syrup, to taste.
  4. Chill in the fridge.
