I fondly remember my Grandmother giving us lemons with peppermint sticks in them for a treat. We would sit out on the porch and suck on those all afternoon. They were sooooo good! A few years ago, my sister was in charge of the concessions at her daughter's basketball games. She bought several pounds of lemons and peppermint sticks and sold them for 50 cents each. The kids loved them!

How to Make Peppermint Lemon


  • 1It is very important you use the soft peppermint sticks, not the hard "candy cane" variety! I usually get "Bob's Old Fashioned Peppermint" sticks at Walmart.
  • 2Wash whole lemons in warm water. Roll lemon back and forth on clean counter to increase juice.
  • 3On upper end of lemon, cut a small hole in rind just big enough to push a peppermint stick into.
  • 4Hold lemon firmly in both hands and gently squeeze while sucking on the end of the peppermint stick. It may take a few strong sucks but soon the lemon juice will come up through the peppermint (like a straw). The perfect lemonade!
  • 5The peppermint may dissolve before you get all the juice out of the lemon, but just push another piece of peppermint down inside and continue to enjoy!
