strawberry mint lemonade

This summer has been very unpredictable with sudden dips in temperature on certain days. But other days are the usual, if not HOTTER days.. And what better to beat the heat with than a chilled glass of lemonade? And to add colour and zest to change the monotony, a handful of strawberries, a bit of ginger and a few mint leaves... Yummm. :)


Lemons - 2 small, deseeded and juice extracted
Strawberries - 4-5 washed and leaves removed
Ginger  - a small (1 cm sq piece)
Mint leaves - 4-5 crushed
Sugar - 3 tbsp
Salt - a small pinch
Cold water - 2 glasses

Method :

Chop the strawberries and place in a blender jar along with the sugar for 5 minutes. You'll notice that it would have released its thick pink juice.. Now add the rest of the ingredients and blend well with a cup of water. Pour in the rest of the cold water and stir well.  Strain and serve chilled with crushed ice on top if desired.
