Lemonade with mint

3 lemons
2 tbsp or more mint
4 to 5 cups of cold water
6 tbsp sugar or more to taste
pinch of salt optional (regular or black salt)

Put the lemons for about 10 to 15 seconds in the microwave which makes it easy to release the juices. Roll the lemon by pressing with the palm then cut into half and squeeze the juice.
Add cold water, sugar and salt if using.
Pound the mint with a mortar and pestle to release flavour then add it to the lemonade. Serve this refreshing drink cold.

This lemonade goes to serve it chilled and anyone can cook.
