Minty Strawberry-Orange Lemonade


Lemonades are great but, since I made that orange-lemonade I have experimented more. This one does not have as much lemon, but is pleasing just the same.

Ingredients

2 oranges

2 lemons

4 or 5 large strawberries

1/8 to 1/4 cup honey

fresh mint leaves

water

ice

  1. Rinse the fruit and mint leaves.
  2. Dry them with a clean towel.
  3. Cut the tops off the strawberries, and cut the oranges and lemons in half.
  4. Squeeze the juice from 1 lemon, pouring it into a pitcher.
  5. Do the same with 1 1/2 oranges.
  6. Add 1/8 to 1/4 cup of honey.
  7. Place the pitcher insert (if you have one) into place.
  8. Cut the remaining half orange into chunks, and slice the strawberries.
  9. Remove the mint leaves from the stems, bruising them a little.
  10. Put the chunks of orange into the insert followed by the mint leaves, then add the strawberry slices.
  11. Pour water over the fruit.
  12. Cover and refrigerate.
  13. Fill glasses with ice. Pour the minty strawberry-orange lemonade over the ice.
  14. Place stainless steel straws into each glass. Add a fresh mint leave, and a slice of lemon.

Tips

  • Grow your own mint to save money. If you can’t garden outside, do so on a sunny windowsill.
  • Try different types of berries for something new.

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve with sandwiches for lunch.

 

Enjoy!
