Limonada

Sip on this sweet and sour delight, served in a small glass jug topped with green apple foam and speckled with fresh mint for an authentic feel.

LIMONADA
(Serves 2)

What you’ll need

  • 1 large Granny Smith apple, roughly chopped
  • ⅓ cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 5 fresh mint leaves
  • Ice
  • Water
  • ⅓ cup sugar or agave syrup to taste

The how-to

  1. Place the apple, lime juice and mint leaves into a blender. Add water and ice to make up 1 litre.
  2. Blend until the apple is completely liquidised and the lemonade frothy.
  3. Either add the sugar to the blender or make a sugar syrup and serve separately in a little jug.
  4. For the syrup, dissolve the sugar in a little water over a low heat, then leave the mixture to thicken for a few minutes before setting aside to cool.
  5. Serve in a large glass pitcher with glasses chilled to frosted perfection.
