Their warm yellow coat of citrus, their fresh perfume that infuses everything it comes in contact with and its juicy and sour flesh that is perfect for any summer drink, lemons creates the most perfect summer treats.
At night I would walk barefoot out unto our private little terrace and close my eyes and just inhale. The citrus mixed with the Jasmin, the orange and the roses from the garden underneath.
It’s the kind of perfume dreams are made of…
I opened up all the windows and balcony doors, and made some lemonade to cool off this little Norwegian body.
What you need
1 lite water
1 1/2 dl sugar (or honey)
5-6 leafs of mint or rosemary (optional)
Juice lemons and limes leaving one whole lemon.
Mix the juice, water and sugar to the sugar dissolves.
Cut the last lemon into think slices.
Beat the lemon slices, mint (or rosemary but not both) and some ice cubes in a mortar.
Sift and mix it all together.
Serve on the rocks with a mint leaf and or some honey to taste for those who like it sweater.
