It’s summer! Well, sort of, in the UK… Been been trying out different types of lemonades, partly because of a glut of mint, basil and rose water/rose syrup. Am working my way through various experiments. Here is my fail safe rose lemonade:
500 ml water (still or carbonated)
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 teaspoon of honey + a large shot of rose water OR: a large shot of rose (or rose and elderflower) syrup
small bunch of mint leaves
Put mint leaves into an empty resealable glass bottle. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over the mint. Seal bottle and chill. Tastes good fresh, but for a mintier taste wait until the following day.
Basil and other herb experiments to follow…
