Here’s a nice non-alcoholic beverage I came up with the other day. I made it out of what I had to hand, and it turned out very well. I don’t know whether it’s really original or not, but it has a refreshing, delicate flavour.

  • Juice of one lime
  • Three teaspoons of sugar
  • A handful of fresh mint leaves

Put the ingredients in a blender—you can add ice at this stage if your blender is sufficiently robust—and fill to the litre mark with water. Blend until the mint is completely pulverised and serve with ice.
