Level: Easy

Ingredients

  • FOR THE SIMPLE SYRUP:
  • ½ cups Water
  • ½ cups Regular Sugar
  • 2 sprigs Rosemary
  • FOR THE LEMONADE:
  • 1-½ cup Lemon Juice, Freshly Squeezed (about 4 Lemons)
  • 3-½ cups Water
  • Ice Cubes, As Needed
  • 4 Tablespoons Fresh Mint Leaves, Chopped
  • 4 sprigs Fresh Rosemary, To Serve

Preparation

For the syrup:
Pour water and sugar into a small pot and bring it to a simmer. Tear 1 to 2 springs of rosemary and add to the syrup. Simmer for a 1 or 2 minutes, stirring. Remove from heat and set aside.

For the lemonade:
Pour lemon juice into a jug and add water. Chop mint thinly and add. Stir.

Chop the mint thinly and add to the mix. Stir.

In a glass, put lots of ice cubes in and add about 1 cup mint lemonade. Add syrup, around 2 to 3 teaspoons depending how sweet you like it. Add a rosemary sprig.

Tip: It’s best to serve the lemonade straight after making it to get the most out of the fresh herbs. However, if you want to make it ahead for the next day, I suggest you add the mint at the last moment.
