This refreshing drink is an Israeli classic, served everywhere to keep you cool in the summer! It combines the word nana נַענַע, which means mint, with limonada לִימוֹנָדָה, which means lemonade, for this very Israeli combination!

1. Slice the lemon, and place in the bottom of a glass or jug with washed and separated mint leaves. Pound them together with a utensil – the end of a rolling pin works great, or try a masher, or even a spoon.
2. Fill the glass or jug with cold water. Add sugar to taste.
3. If you’re serving immediately, add ice cubes.
Optional – For extra fun, skip the water and blend lemon, mint, sugar and ice in a blender for a special treat – ice limonana!
