Lemonade with clementines and bergamot

Some weeks ago I found a recipe on lemonade made from clementines and bergamot in the weekly newsletter issue 6/2013, so when I located a bergamot in my weekly vegetable box, I knew at once, that I wanted to make lemonade.

The peel of the bergamot has a lovely flavour of bergamot, which I recognise from Earl Grey tea. However, the in-side of the bergamote taste of a normal lemon.

This lemonade is a wonderful combination of sweetness and flavour of the clementines with freshness from the bergamote.

Bergamot can also be turned into bergamot-orange jam.

Lemonade with clementines and bergamot:
  • 500 g (organic) clementines - peel from ½ the clementines and juice from all clementines
  • 1 (organic) bergamot - peel and juice
  • 100 g sugar
  • 600 g water

  1. Peel the clementines (½ of the fruits) and bergamot with potato peeler, avoid to have to much of the white part of the peel.
  2. Squeeze all the citrus fruits and add the juice into a small cooking pot together with all the peels.
  3. Add sugar and water into the cooking pot as well. You can increase the sugar amount, if you want more sweetness in your lemonade.
  4. Cook the lemonade up to the boiling point and let it simmer for 5 minutes. Keep a lid on the cooking pot, so you maintain as much flavour in the lemonade as possible.
  5. After 5 minutes cooking, remove the cooking pot from the stove and let it rest for another 15 minutes.
  6. Pass the lemonade through a sieve and fill into storage bottles.
  7. Cool down the lemonade.
  8. Serve the lemonade with plenty of ice cubes.
Cheers :-)
