Now the sun is fully here (we hope for a long time!) and it is lovely and warm outside on the farm, we decided to try this cooling ‘mocktail’ - it has now become a family favourite!

  • ¼ cup fresh mint leaves
  • 2 small limes – squeeze out the juice
  • Sugar or honey – to taste
  • 1 tsp of chopped ginger (optional)
  • 2 ½ cups cold water
To Serve
  • Crushed ice (optional)
  • Lime slices (optional)
  1. In a blender blend the fresh mint leaves, chopped ginger, lime juice till almost a paste.
  2. Then add in the water, sugar or honey to taste and blend for half a minute or till well combined.
  3. Serve chilled with some crushed ice.
  4. For a special touch, you may dip the rim of the serving glass in very little water and then immediately dip lightly in some salt. Then insert a lime slice in each glass, pour in the cooler and serve!
