This is a terrific party drink, when alcohol is not an option ….. and when it is!

Ingredients

  • ½ cup (125 ml) unsweetened pineapple juice
  • juice of ½ lime
  • 1 strip lime zest
  • 2 mint leaves, washed, finely sliced
  • ½ cup ice
  • ½ cup (125 ml) soda water

Method

  1. Place pineapple juice, lime juice, lime zest, mint and ice in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for 1 minute.
  2. Pour into a glass, top with soda water, then stir and top with extra mint leaves if desired.

RECIPE NOTES

Health tip: Fruit juice is full of natural fruit sugar, so it is recommended that you drink no more than 125 ml per day.

Cook’s tips: If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, simply place ingredients in a glass and stir, then allow to sit in the fridge for a few minutes before adding ice to allow the flavours to infuse.  Replace pineapple juice with 1 cup fresh diced pineapple and blend for added fibre and thicker drink.
