Simmered slowly with lemon, this homemade barley water is the perfect way to quench your thirst this summer and a great alternative to sugary soft drinks.

  1. Soak the barley in cold water for 15 minutes. Drain, then simmer in 1.5ltr water for 20 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the pared citrus zests. Steep for 20 minutes.
  2. Strain to remove the zest and barley. Cool. Stir the citrus juices and honey into the barley water. Serve cold in glasses over ice and garnish with the extra lemon slices.
