Let's Make Frosty Limonana!

Limonana is made up of lemons, sugar, and lots of mint leaves! It tastes similar to frozen lemonade, but with a minty flavor added. It's popular all throughout Israel and some call it the official drink of the country!


½ cup packed mint leaves, plus more for garnish
1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (from 4 to 6 lemons)
1/3 cup granulated sugar, or more as needed
1/3 cup water
3 cups ice cubes
¼ teaspoon orange blossom water, optional


1) Add the mint leaves, lemon juice, 1/3 cup sugar, water, ice cubes and orange blossom water, if using, to a blender. Process until ice is broken up and mixture is frothy. Taste and add a tablespoon or two additional sugar, if desired; blend again.

2) Divide into two glasses and serve immediately.
