This recipe is really popular in Greece, especially since a lot of households have a lemon tree or two in the garden.... I make it every year, since we have way too many lemons to eat otherwise... plus - it is The Best refreshing drink during the summer when you're just melting from heat.... like now... :)
So, here goes. It's really simple. All you need is lemons, sugar, a bottle that closes hermetically and some patience. This recipe is without boiling or heating anything, and it preserves all of the fresh aroma and flavor!
|fresh lemon juice|
To serve: mix about 1 part of lemonade to 4 parts of water (sparkling water is really nice!). Adding a few leaves of mint is a good idea, too.
