The mother of my friend Panayotis was so kind to share her signature recipe of mint grape lemonade with me. This rich on C vitamin fresh drink is perfect for a summer heat. It’s a healthy and simple recipe with the preparation time of 20 minutes.
2 l drinking water
2-4 glass of sugar (at taste)
800 g red or black grapes
50 g fresh mint
juice of 1 lime squeezed
1 lemon cut in slices
ice cubes for serving
- Cut the lime in slices and grain together with mint and sugar.
- Add mashed grapes and fill with water.
- Let the drink stay for 4 hours minimum (for 6 hours would be even better).
You can strain the drink before serving if you want. Serve in glasses with a few ice cubes. Your fresh vitamin-rich drink is ready!
I’ve tried this recipe by myself and it is one of my favourite drinks to save the day now!
