Polo aka Limon bi Nana



Good use of the mint growing in our garden! I prepared two renditions: one with orange blossom water and one with rose water. Delicious, summery and refreshing! Lime juice sounds good as a substitute for lemon juice, don't you think? Found on greenprophet.com.

How to Make Polo aka Limon bi Nana


  1. Blend all ingredients *except ice cubes* in a blender until smooth. Take a taste. Not minty enough and you want it mintier? Add more fresh mint!

    Pour over ice, and if desired garnish with mint leaf and lemon slice. *Tip: If you're bothered by the little specks of mint that did not completely blend into the water, you can pour the beverage through a fine mesh sieve first.
