Lemon Mint Barley WaterThe complete recipe for Lemon Mint Barley Water on Yahoo Shine.
  • 3/4 cups pearl barley
  • 5 teaspoons sugar
  • 3 lemons, unwaxed or scrubbed of the wax coating
  • 1 bunch fresh mint
  • 6 cups water
servings:6
  1. Rinse the pearl barley and place in a large saucepan. Cover with the water and place on a high heat, and bring to a boil. Bring it down to a simmer, and cook for about 60 minutes, or until the barley is soft.
  2. When it's done, skim off any foam and drain the cooking water in to a large bowl (keep the barley for whatever dish you want - I made a barley, spinach and green pea salad).
  3. Add the zest of the lemons and sugar to the barley water and leave to steep until cool. Next, add the juice of the three lemons (I added about half a cup of water at this stage to dilute it slightly) and chill in the fridge. Taste, and adjust sweetness to your liking.
  4. Pour over ice, muddle with fresh mint and serve with tennis.

    Personally, Im not a big fan on "fruit waters" because usually, they aren't that flavored! But this? YUM! I love the lemony zest and the spurtt of mint that comes. This drink is really refreshing!
