Lemonade-Mint Refresher

 When you order lemonade in Morocco, you get a small glass of straight lemon juice accompanied by sugar cubes on the side. It’s the DIY version, but that way you can control the sweetness. This is a lightly sweetened lemonade, far from the “Countrytime” powdered stuff.

Ingredients (Makes 1 tall serving):
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 2 teaspoons honey, or sugar
  • 2 sprigs mint, torn
  • 15 oz. cold water

Mix mix all ingredients together and stir well. Serve over ice for most refreshing sensation.
