So refreshing to have this drink in summer. If you don't have mint or your kid does not like mint, leave it. This drink is also delicious without it.
Sending this post to Srivalli's Kid's Delight event, host of the month Harini - theme Fruits in any form - week 1 day 3.
1 Cup Water
½ Cup Sugar
½ Cup Fresh mint leaves
2 - 3 Lemons
Sparkling water as required
In a saucepan, heat water with sugar, stirring occasionally until sugar is dissolves. Simmer, uncovered for 5 minutes on low flame. Remove from heat and stir in mint leaves. Let stand for half an hour or till it is cooled.
Meanwhile, peel kiwifruit and cut into chunks. Puree in a food processor. Place puree in a large jar. Strain cooled syrup into the jar, pressing on mint, then discard leaves.
Refrigerate until cold. Squeeze juice from 2 lemons. Stir into kiwifruit mixture. Taste, squeeze in juice from remaining lemon for a tarter lemonade.
Pour into glasses. Top with sparkling water. Serve garnished with a slice of lemon and mint leaves.
Makes about 2 cups without sparkling water, enough for 4 glasses.
