Taz 2013 Bring it on!
when we were just down in London in a fabulous falafel shop – should have asked them for their recipe
Sessygail Is having her best year yet.
I wonder if it is close. It is called “Turkish Mint Lemonade” (I’m thinking falafel/Turkish somehow close?)
2 bunches of fresh mint leaves
1 cup of granulated sugar
5 medium lemons, juiced without seeds
2 1/2 cups of cold water (plus one more if too sweet per your taste)
Remove the stems from the mint leaves.
Wash the leaves and press them down into a 1/2 cup measure.
You should have enough leaves to fill the cup.
Place the mint leaves, sugar, and lemon juice in a blender and blend. Strain the mint mixture through a fine sieve and place in a large pitcher.
Add 2-1/2 cups of cold water, and ice if desired.
Chill and serve in cold or chilled glasses garnished with additional mint leaves or a slice of lemon.
If this is too sweet for your taste, add an extra cup of water.
*If you want to add some alcohol, add 1 shot glass of Limoncello or vodka. Okkk, add more vodka or even rum!
