Mint-Lemonade


INGREDIENTS:

6 ounces of lemon juice
sugar syrup: 1/2 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water
2 bunches of mint (can reduce to one bunch only)
ice cubes, as needed
1 1/2 cups of water

METHOD:

First make the syrup by placing granulated sugar and water in a pan and heating the mixture till it dissolves.
Juice enough lemons to get about 6 ounces.
Wash one or two bunches of mint and cut off the leaves from the stalks.
Place syrup, lemon juice, ice cubes (several, I used about 8), mint in a blender
Run the machine until the mixture is smooth and looks like a frozen slush; taste for sweetness adding one tablespoon or more of powdered sugar if needed.
