One of my favourite things to do in summer is to go down to the beach with my friends and have picnics at sunset. I am lucky enough to not only have marvellous friends but to live in one of the most beautiful cities on earth, Cape Town. Our beaches are pristine and summer sunsets are around 8pm so it allows for extra time after work to really enjoy the evening! There are few things as beautiful as watching the sun go down and seeing the colour palette explode over the sky.
This cocktail is great for summer because of its fresh flavours. You can take it down to the beach or simply enjoy it with friends over lunch. It's the perfect start to the weekend!
- 125ml mint leaves
- 2 limes, cut into 1cm-pieces
- 3 fresh ginger (cut into thin sticks)
- 8 passion fruits
- 4 oranges, juiced
- ice cubes
- Sparkling soda
- vodka (optional)
Muddle mint leaves, the lime pieces and half of the ginger sticks in a bowl, then pour it into a pitcher.
Cut the passion fruits in half and scoop out the flesh into the pitcher.
Add juice from the oranges and ice cubes and stir around.
Top it with sparkling soda, a couple of ginger sticks and a mint leaf.
If you have opted for vodka add a single shot per glass or stronger if that is your vibe!
Cheers to the weekend!
