Use the Contents box to search for recipes by dish type, the Blog Archives to search for a specific recipe by title or the Ingredients Index to pull up all recipes that feature a particular ingredient.

Mint Lemonade

There's nothing quite like this sharp, minted lemonade to quench one's thirst after toiling in summer's cloying heat. I find that unsweetened lemonade is more refreshing, but if you must sugar your drinks, try adding a little locally produced honey to this recipe.

  • freshly squeezed juice of one lemon
  • 2 cups ice water
  • sprig of fresh mint


Mix juice, water (& sweetener if desired) thoroughly.
Add mint whole.
Chill 1 - 2 hours to allow mint flavour to infuse lemonade.
Enjoy over ice.
