Homemade lemonade

Ingredientes

4 limones.
80 gr de azúcar (eso dependerá del punto de dulzor que te guste)
500 gr de cubitos de hielo.
500 gr de agua.


Wash a lemon very well and peel its skin, try to keep as little of the white part as possible, and put it in the blender.
Peel the 4 lemons completely so that you are left with just the wedges, no white part and no skin. Also remove as many pips as possible. Put the lemons in the blender and add half of the water (about 250 g).
Blend until you have a paste. Pour the mixture through a sieve and strain. Rinse the blender beaker, pour the strained mixture into it, and add the rest of the water, the ice cubes and the sugar. Blend again until the ice cubes have almost broken down. Add a few mint leaves and it’s ready.

You can serve it in a drink dispenser.
