Persian Lemonade

Recipe by Mandy

My lemon tree is quite generous through winter and I like looking for different recipes to use up my stash. I found this on The orange blossom flavour is really subtle and this is a nice twist on traditional lemonade.

Simply a wonderful lemonade Mandy. I enjoyed this sweet, tart and tangy citrus treat very much. It was so quick and easy to throw together. I also added 2 tbsps of the orange blossom water to the recipe. For a less subtle flavor. Thank you so much for sharing.
