Refreshing Berry Lemonade

After weeks (who am I kidding, months…) of constant stressing and working I will take four days off to relax at our summer house next week. The weather forecast predicts good weather too for once, yay!

I’m looking forward to spending some time in the garden, relaxing and sipping on lemonade. Lemonade is the best thirst quencher during summer, don’t you think? I love homemade lemonade, it’s both tastier and free from weird additives and preservatives.

This version is both super easy and quick to make, and the berries add a lovely fruity flavor – yum!

Ingredients
  1. 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

  4. 1 cup blueberries

  6. 1/4 cup fresh mint
