L is for Luscious Lemon Juice

Yes, another post of one of my favorite summer refreshments – lemon juice! This glass is definitely in more of a traditional Cairo setting than my last lemon juice photo, which had more of a touristy-beach kind of feeling. I enjoyed this particular lemon juice at a local coffee shop on Road 9 in Ma’adi. (Yes, despite the plethora of fancy/foreign coffee shops on this street, it is still possible to partake of something a bit more local and familiar.) That’s some fresh mint, my hubby’s order of a hot fenugreek infusion, and a sugar dish on the tray. Yum, yum.

So grab yourself a cold one today and raise a toast to Egypt’s new President-elect, Mohamed Morsi!
