    A natural summer cooler made with mint, lemon and ginger. Refreshing and healthy with no added preservative in it.


    • 2 cups of fresh mint leaves
    • 6 large lemons
    • 1 Kg of sugar
    • 1 liter of water
    • 1/2 tsp of freshly grated ginger
    • A pinch of green color (food grade)


    1. Pick the mint leaves and wash it in running water.
    2. Clean and grate the ginger.
    3. Heat water in a vessel and add sugar to it. Let the sugar dissolve; filter the sugar syrup with a thin muslin cloth.
    4. Boil it further on medium heat till the syrup becomes a bit thick, about 20 minutes. Take off heat and cool the syrup.
    5. Now add the mint leaves, grated ginger and juice of lemons. Leave it aside for 4-5 hours to let the mint flavor seep into the syrup.
    6. Add green color if required.
    7. Store the concentrate in a clean glass bottle.
    8. To make the drink, pour about 1 tbsp. of the concentrate and add water to suit your taste.
    9. Top it with crushed ice and serve the refreshing Minty-lemony drink.
