Fresh lemon lemonade
- 6-8 lemons (the juice should be about 500 ml)
- 250 gr white sugar (cane sugar or coconut flour sugar will give a brown color to the lemonade)
- 2 tblsp honey
- 1 lemon zest of half a lemon
- 1 pinch salt
- 6 l water (mineral water to dilute the syrup)
- 1 handfull mint leaves (one for every glass)
- We will first make a lemon syrup that we can dilute with water afterwards. This syrup can easily be kept in the fridge for a week, so you always have a supply to make a new bottle. Squeeze the lemons until you have 500 ml of juice. Pour the juice into a cooking pot together with the white sugar, lemon zest, honey and a pinch of salt. Let it simmer on a medium for a while while stirring. The sugar dissolves completely and after a while the juice becomes a bit more viscous. Turn off the heat and pour the juice through a sieve. Let it cool down completely.
- Keep the syrup in a bottle. Take a larger empty bottle of eg 2 liters, add 3 tablespoons of the syrup and fill the rest of the bottle with water. Ready, let the lemonade cool well and when pouring you can add a mint leaf to each glass. Here, at home, young and old are fans of this fresh lemonade. This lemonade brings the southern scents and the sun to your table.
