Hello and welcome to all Mom Bloggers!


What better way than to start my postings with a refreshing welcome drink. This minty-lemony drink was
a huge hit in one of the parties we arranged for my husbands’ colleagues. Most
of whom who were used to colas got little hesitant to try out the green color
welcome drink. But after the first sip no one could just stop with one, and the
huge piles of empty cups in my backyard were telling the success story.


Minty lemony drink is a permanent feature in my refrigerator during the hot summer months. My kids love
to take this in a small bottle along with their lunch bag to school.


The recipe below is for making a concentrate of the drink and store in the refrigerator. Mix with water
and top it with crushed ice to and enjoy this refreshing drink the whole year.


Set the scene for smiles and get the party rolling, with Minty-lemony drink.


Ingredients;

  • 2 cups of fresh mint leaves
  • 2 large lemons
  • 1 Kg of sugar
  • 1 liter of water
  • 1/2 tsp of freshly grated ginger
  • A pinch of green color (food grade)
Method: Pick the mint leaves and wash it in running water. Clean and grate the ginger. Heat water in a

vessel and add sugar to it. Let the sugar dissolve; filter the sugar syrup with
a thin muslin cloth. Boil it further on medium heat till the syrup becomes a
bit thick, about 20 minutes. Take off heat and cool the syrup. Now add the mint
leaves, grated ginger and juice of lemons. Leave it aside for 4-5 hours to let
the mint flavor seep into the syrup. Add green color if required.


Store the concentrate in a clean glass bottle. To make the drink, pour about 1 tbsp. of the concentrate
and add water to suit your taste.


Top it with crushed ice and serve the refreshing Minty-lemony drink.
