Recipe: Ouzo Lemonade


For Mother's Day, I requested from my husband a Greek menu with lots of lemon. Everything had lemon. The chicken he grilled on the BBQ, the Cabbage Salad, the potato wedges and even this delicious drink.

The sun was out. I was sipping on my Ouzo Lemonade while watching my love grill and listening to the koi splash around in the pond. I couldn't have asked for a better Mother's Day dinner.

This recipe took only minutes to make and was refreshing. Surprisingly enough, the store was out of fresh mint. I guess everyone needed mint for Mother's Day, so we ended up using dried mint leaves, but it still turned out great so you do have options if fresh mint is not available.

Servings: 6-8 servings

Time to Make: Less than 10 minutes


Fresh Mint Leaves
1 Gallon lemonade
1 Lemon for garnish
1/3 Cup honey
2 Cups Ouzo


1. Muddle mint, lemonade and honey in a pitcher until honey is dissolved.

2. Add Ouzo and top with ice.

3. Serve garnished with mint and lemon slices.
