Mint Drink

Who doesn't like the cool flavor of mint and lemon? Here is a great recipe combining two yummy flavors. This is also great drink for getting rid of the pitta dosha or heat effects generated in the body. Its a great remedy for indigestion and stomach upsets. Other than that you can enjoy it with a dash of soda and ice cubes in summer.

15-20 mint leaves
1 tablespoon sugar
4 -5 tablespoon lemon juice
1 cup water
ice cubes

Grind the mint leaves into a fine paste with water. Strain the mint juice to separate the fiber and stalks. Add lemon juice and sugar to the strained juice. Add ice cubes and serve immediately.
