A perfect summer drink with lemon zest, lemon juice, mint and ginger.


  • 1 cup lemon juice (5 lemons)
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons lemon zest
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp ginger powder or freshly grated ginger
  • 5 cups hot water
  • A few leaves of fresh mint
  • ice cubes to serve


  1. Start with grating the lemon zest. Grate just the yellow part, when you reach its white, stop grating or your lemonade tastes bitter. Then squeeze the lemons, you must get a cup of lemon juice. If the suggested number of lemons is not enough for it, add one or two extra lemons.
  2. Put the lemon juice and grated lemon zest in a big jar. Add sugar and ginger powder in it. Pour 5 cups hot water and stir until the sugar melts. Cover the jar and let it rest. When it reaches room temperature, chill it in the refrigerator for about 3 hours. Then take it out and transfer it into a pitcher with a strainer. Put a few leaves of mint into it and it is ready to serve.
  3. Put some ice cubes in a glass. Pour some lemonade and put mint leaves and blossoms on the top. You can also add two very thin lemon slices for garnish.
