The most refreshing lemonade

September 3, 2015

lemonade 02

Hey everyone, today’s post and recipe is only a very short one, but it’s good – believe me 😉

It has been one of my favorite recipes of this summer. Lemonade, made from fresh limes and mint – not too sweet and not too sour, perfectly balanced, rehydrating and refreshing on summer days is how I would describe it. The PhD student I was working with during my internship introduced me to this simple drink, which is a wonderful alternative to pure water as a drink on hot summer days. Her husband was so nice to take pictures of the lemonade when we prepared some during a cooking and baking session a few weeks ago, so credit for most of the pictures in this post goes to him – thank you, Kosta!

Actually, this lemonade also inspired the Mint-glazed Lemon Cake, which I posted recently, and accompanies this cake very well 🙂 So if you’re craving something super-quickly made and refreshing to enjoy on the last hot day’s of summer, this is the thing for you to try!
