After reading about this here and then here, I was dying to try it out!! Also, because I was in the induction phase of the low carb diet and due to the heat – there was never a better time to try this out. I didn’t make it at home as we were invited over to a friend’s house – so I can assure you that this beverage is easy and quick to assemble.. i.e. it travels well. It would be a good idea to just ask your host to prepare some ice cubes beforehand (or as my very clever host did, freeze some sliced limes!) and you’re good to go!
You will need:
- Fresh mint, chopped
- Clementines and/or lemons and/or limes
- Ice or freeze any of the above fruits
- Water (still or sparkling) or lemonade or tonic water
There are various ways to experiment with this really refreshing drink – why not try basil and strawberries? You may also prepare a pitcher a couple of hours earlier to give time for the infusion to happen and then add ice just before serving.
