Middle Eastern Lemonade

A basic, simple recipe using fresh lemons and lots of mint. There's nothing better to cool your thirst on those hot desert nights.

Serves 6

8 lemons
3/4 cup sugar, or to taste
1 teaspoon orange blossom water, or to taste
generous 1/4 cup freshly chopped mint
water (or seltzer) and ice cubes

Squeeze the juice from the lemons and sweeten to taste with the sugar. Add the orange blossom water and the mint, and stir or shake well together. Pour a little into a tall glass and fill with water or soda and ice.
