Just a quick reminder, please do send in your Kid friendly dishes to Kid's Delight - What Kids love...for Summer! ENDS July 15th!
For today, I have a easy breezy recipe which all kids love! My kids love it a lot and i enjoy it with them too. I am sure no kid or adult is going to say no to this refreshing drink! It can be made to how you like it. How sweet or how sour you like it! How minty or how lemony you like it! How cold or how warm you like! Well my kids think it tastes the best with few cubes of ice and a sprig of mint to smell and taste the flavor in the lemonade. Yes its Minty Mint Lemonade...cool cool and cold cold Minty Lemonade! A very refreshing summer drink which is sure to cool everyone down in this summer heat!
I like to crush the mint leaves in the juice to get the flavor out of the leaves into the drink and strain it to serve for the kids. If you don't mind eating the leaves along with the drink, you can leave them in the drink.
Makes about 4 cups
1 cup of sugar (more or less, depending on taste)
3 cups of water
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (more or less)
a bunch of mint leaves, about a 1/4 cup
Add sugar into 1 cup of water and bring it to a slow boil. Make sure all the sugar is dissolved. Let this cool down.
Add the rest of water and lemon juice together with the sugar syrup.
(Add the sugar syrup and lemon juice, little by little, and taste to see if you are not making it too sweet or sour for your taste)
Add the mint leaves and crush them with the back of a wooden spoon.
Strainer the mint leaves and chill till serving time.
Serve over ice or just like that with a slice of lemon and a leaf of mint.
