When life gives you lemons, you make a frozen mint lemonade. This isn’t your classic lemonade stand recipe – this minty drink is called Limonana in the Middle East, but we like to call it “delicious”!

Ingredients

Servings: 4 small glasses

  • ½ cup fresh lemon juice (about 4 lemons)
  • ¾ cup cold water
  • ¼ cup fresh mint, lightly packed
  • ¼ cup sugar or honey
  • 4 cups ice

Instructions

  1. In a blender, combine the lemon juice, water, mint and sugar. Blend until the sugar has completely dissolved.
  2. Add the ice. Blend on low speed to break up the ice, then increase the speed and blend until you’ve reached a uniformly slushy texture. If the mixture is too thick to blend, let it rest for 5 minutes, stir by hand, and try again.
  3. Pour into glasses and place a sprig of mint in each. Serve immediately.
