This easy mint lemonade is the perfect summer refresher. Made with only a few ingredients, this lemonade is super easy to make!

  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 2 liters 1x



120g (0.6 cups) sugar (white)

2 organic lemons

Leaves from 8 stalks of mint

2l (0.5 gallon) water


Give the mint and the lemons a thorough wash.

Add the sugar and mint to your blender. Next, add either just the juice of the lemons, the lemon juice and lemon zest, or simply slices of lemon to the blender. Adding the slices will make the lemonade a bit more bitter, but still delicious.

Top the ingredients with some cold water and get the blender going. Blend the mint lemonade until it seems well combined.

After a minute, you will see the pulp and liquid separate. The lemonade tastes best strained. Pour it through a fine steel strainer, a coffee filter, or a cheesecloth. 

Enjoy it with some ice cubes.


You can further dilute the lemonade. I like to use sparking water!

Also, you can combine the lemonade with a few cups of ice cubes, and blend it into a slush. This is probably the most refreshing way to enjoy this lemonade.

You can adjust the sugar based on your personal preference. If you find the lemonade too intense, you can simply further dilute it, or adjust the ratios to your liking.
