Frozen Mint Lemonade (Limonana) ~ a version of muddy, mint, and Middle Eastern lemonade that is honestly the most refreshing drink I've ever had.

This is the drink that I am going to take (sip) ALL August. I found out when I was out to lunch with my daughter (modeling above) the other day. She ordered a mint lemonade, and was curious about it. She said she learned to love him on a summer trip to the Middle East. She hadn't had it since then, so we were both excited to see it on the menu.

Take 2 of the world's most refreshing foods, mint and lemons, fill them with plenty of ice, and you get an epic soda.

We picked up lemons and fresh mint on the way home and haven't looked back since. We made our first batch the next day, in triple digit temperatures, and it was so refreshing that it spoiled all the other summer drinks. There is something about lemon and mint together that cools you down and quenches your thirst instantly. And with just a touch of sugar or honey, this is also a super healthy, low calorie drink.

Limonana is served throughout the Middle East, and for such a simple concept (mint-infused lemonade) it has a huge impact. I have never had a more delicious and energizing drink, and I know you will love it. The second time we did it (the next day!) We added it with rum for a mojito cocktail and it was equally amazing, I recommend you try it both ways.

I love my stainless steel straws ~ They're fun to drink and eco-friendly too.

How is Limonana made?

  • squeeze some lemons and mix a quick lemonade with the juice, a little sugar syrup and water.
  • Pluck a good handful of fresh green mint leaves (use green mint, not mint, for the best flavor).
  • Add everything to a good blender (Vitamix is ​​my favorite) along with some ice. (You can also do it without ice).
  • Mix until muddy and pour into a tall glass.
  • You will not regret.

Feel free to adjust the amount of any of the ingredients, many different combinations will work, depending on how sweet or minty you like it. My recipe is spicy and not very sweet.
