Hello Lovely Readers,

Its Mid- August and yet so hot outside. Its really humid and no rain. You really need a drink to beat the heat during the day. My favorites for this summer have been Tendo- Coconut Water, Salted Fresh Lime Sodas, and Buttermilk. I have been avoiding soft drinks this summer because of the high amount of sugar in them and in order to avoid those unwanted calories. Though Fresh Lime too isn’t all that great but yes at least better than Cold Drinks.

Summers scream Lemons to me. Lemons are my ultimate favorite. I love drinks with lemon and mint. This drink is just one of those experiments when i wanted to infuse lemon and mint together. Also to add a little twist to the flavor I have added Ginger to this drink. Ginger brings about that additional taste and also minimizes the sweetness of Lychee Juice. The amount of ginger totally depends upon your taste. But about 1 tsp of Grated Ginger is more than enough in each glass. So don’d add a lot of ginger as the drink  will get bitter. If you are not a big fan of Lychee Juice, you can replace it with either sprite or Grape Juice. But not with any other flavor.It is super easy to make. All you got to do is mix all the ingredients together and your drink is ready.

P.S- The Lychee Juice is the heart of this mocktail.
