Limonada (Mediterranean Mint-Lemonade)

I can’t really describe this drink beyond cool in a cup.


2c crushed ice 4 c water
1 c sugar
juice of 1 large lemon
25-40 fresh mint leaves
2 large lemons or limes, seeded & chunked

Add all the ingredients to the pitcher of a high-quality blender. Cover and push blend or liquefy (high-speed function), until you achieve the desired drink consistency. Taste and add more sugar or mint leaves, if you like. Blend again. Pour the lemonade into a serving pitcher through a mesh strainer. Add fresh mint leaves to the pitcher. Cover and refrigerate until you are ready to serve. If you like, strain the lemonade again as you pour into serving glasses. Enjoy cold!
