It’s been a funny old mix of hot, then cool, then humid, in London-town. Definitely an odd start to the school summer holidays. We’re finally done with the merry-go-round that characterises the last weeks of summer term and I’m exhausted! The highlight of this week was surprising DD at her school’s awards ceremony yesterday; she had no inkling she was up for one. Her bestie also got one, so Breton Bestie and I were on camera and camcorder duty – #ProudMumsAreUs 😀
To celebrate her achievement, I created a delicious mocktail, based on one we both enjoyed at a dim sum restaurant recently. I was quite pleased with my efforts!
~1 cup / 250ml guava juice
~1 cup / 250ml coconut water
~A few leaves of basil, preferably Thai sweet basil
~A few leaves of mint
~A dash of lime juice
I don’t have a fancy shaker, so I just used a clean passata jar. I roughly tore the basil and mint leaves, poured in guava juice, then coconut water, added a dash of lime juice, and shook, shook, shook!
They were very delicious and more-ish….I think a hint of lemongrass, if you have it, would also work well. And I’m guessing a splash of vodka would also go down a treat, if you so fancy. Perhaps I ought to do some test runs, dear reader?
