Welcome, 2016! I will elaborate more on this topic (review of the last year, plans and goals for the new one etc.) in a future post, but for now I just want to wish you all to be healthy and happy and to spend more time with your nearest and dearest! Have the courage and the patience to achieve your goals and to appreciate what you already have.
Now, let me show you a drink, which feels just as refreshing as the new year! Cheesy much? 😀
Here is the recipe for this delicious, refreshing strawberry mint lemonade.
First, you need to prepare the sirup. Mix 60 g of sugar with the same amount of water (or a little bit more!) in a small saucepan and slowly bring it to a boil. Then put it in the refrigerator or if you are making this in the winter like me, just use the balcony – it will be cold in 5 minutes 😉
Meanwhile, blend 250 g of frozen strawberries, the juice of 3 lemons and mint until smooth.
Add the sugar sirup and at least 600-700 ml of water and blend again. You can adjust the flavor to your liking by adding more water or lemon juice. If you use cold water, you can consume the drink immediately.
Serve cold with a slice of lemon and more mint. This amount should be enough for 4 glasses. Enjoy!
