Grilled Lemonade

We all love a cold refreshing drink of lemonade while outdoors, but if you are getting a little tired of the traditional style, add a spin with this grilled version!

The lemons are grilled before being squeezed giving them an great sweetness and the lemonade a caramelized sweet flavor. Another twist in this recipe is the addition of mint, but have also seen rosemary used.

Once trying this it will be hard to go back to the traditional style!

Ingredients

Simple Syrup

2 cups water

1/2 cup of honey

3 sprigs mint

Lemonade

15 lemons, halfed

1 cup sugar

4 cups water

ice

To Serve

mint sprigs

additional ice

Equipment

grill

Recipe Directions

  1. In a saucepan over the grill add the 2 cups of water, honey and mint, stir to combine. Leave to simmer.

  2. Cut each lemon slightly off center, then cut a lemon slice from the larger side. When finished you will have two equally sized lemon ‘halves’ and a lemon slice. Continue this for all the lemons.

  3. Place the sugar in a shallow bowl, dip each lemon face down in the sugar then place on the grill. Continue cooking until there are pleasant grill marks.

  4. Tip the residual sugar into the simple syrup and stir to dissolve.

  5. Juice all the lemons and place in a large serving jug or similar.

  6. Add the simple syrup to the lemon juice.

  7. Add the 4 cups of water and ice, stir to combine.

  8. 3 or 4 juiced lemon halves can be added to the jug.

  9. Pour a glass of lemonade, add extra ice then garnish with the lemon slice created above when cutting the lemons (this can be grilled or not) and a small mint sprig.
