It was in a tenth-century Arabic treatise on farming that the lemon was first recorded in literature. Since then, there has been a long love affair between Middle Eastern peoples and the lemon: for cooking, for salads, for sweets, and in this case, as a perfectly refreshing drink. This thirst-quencher is served in all of Gaza’s higher-end restaurants, but is also made at home and served to esteemed guests when in season.
