Our family has been living abroad in Tel Aviv, Israel for the past 7 months, but we move back to the states in two days! It’s hard to believe our time has come to a close. Our apartment is down the block from the largest open air market in the city, which has been a great source of inspiration for seasonal eating. I’ve spent many hours in our little galley kitchen, cooking new foods and coming up with recipes to bring home as a remembrance of our time here. One of those is my take on an Israeli staple: Mint Lemonade. I make mine with raw honey and add mint ice cubes. It’s perfect for the summer days ahead!
- 5 medium lemon
- 10 leaves mint, fresh
- 2 tablespoon honey
- 4 cup water
- Bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Meanwhile, rinse the mint and juice enough lemons to make 3/4 cup of lemon juice. Once water begins to boil, turn off heat and add mint sprigs and honey. Stir well. Let steep for 5-10 minutes. Combine mint water with lemon juice in a glass pitcher. Pour over mint ice cubes to chill. Enjoy! Please note, you can always add extra lemon juice or honey, to taste if need be.
