Today I am sharing a refreshing drink, lemonade with honey and mint. I can drink lemonade any time of the year but cold lemonade is especially perfect for those hot summer days.
I use honey to keep my lemonade on the healthy side. Fresh mints make this sweet and tangy healthy drink more refreshing!
It takes less than 5 minutes to make this lemonade. I share my recipe for one but you can easily make it for a crowd.
The Ingredients for a Single Serve Lemonade Recipe

- 1 cup water
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 sprig fresh mint
Benefits of Lemon, Honey and Mint
When I feel like I am getting sick (or I am sick), I make lemonade because of its protective benefits.
- Lemons- It is rich in Vitamin C and protects our immune system. It helps to reduce the cold and flu virus.
- Honey-Rich in antioxidants, boosts the immune system. An easy remedy for a sore throat.
- Mint- Again, rich in antioxidants and improves the immune system. Prevents memory loss. It helps to relieve stomach pain.

The steps are so easy. Today my niece makes it for you. 🙂
How to Make Mint Lemonade
First, squeeze the washed lemon. You can strain it if you like, or skip the step if you prefer pumps. (Actually, pumps are good for health.)
If you are making a single serve, pour it into the glass and add honey. Mix them together. If you are making the lemonade for a crowd, pour the lemon juice into a jug and mix with honey.
Add the water and give a stir. Then add the mint leaves. Keep in the fridge to let it cool and absorb the mint flavor.
When you are ready to drink, you can add a lemon slice and ice cubes to make it a summer, refreshing treat!
My niece was impatient to drink her lemonade. She enjoyed it so much. I hope you enjoy this lemonade recipe as much as we do!
- How Can You Easily Get More lemon Juice? Roll the lemon back and forth on a counter with some pressure before cutting. You’ll get more lemon juice when you squeeze!
- How Can You Mix In Honey Easily? After you squeeze the lemon, mix it with honey first and then add the water.
- If you are sick, let the juice absorb the mint at room temperature for some time and enjoy your drink immediately to get all the benefits!
