Lebanese Mint Lemonade



I came across this at Yalla Yalla the other day. Gloriously sharp and refreshing, it’s immensely quaffable and there’s been nothing else I’ve wanted to drink quite so much since. Don’t forget to strip the leaves from the stalks. There’s nothing worse than stalky bits in your lemonade.


the juice of 4 lemons

45g mint (leaves only)

75g caster sugar

1 litre water

optional- a dollop of orange blossom honey



  • make a rough syrup by placing the sugar and water in a pan and simmer until just dissolved.
  • Blitz the mint and lemon juice in a blender. Add the cooled syrup, honey (if using) and adjust adding more lemon, mint or sugar as required. Serve with plenty of ice.
