a beckoning- Lime Mint Cooler

While in Bahrain, we used to frequent this South Indian restaurant by the name of 'Sangeetha', almost every Saturday after mass for breakfast. (Yes, since Sundays were working days we used to go for Mass on Saturdays). This Restaurant was right outside the Indian Club and used to be really busy. Irrespective of what we order to eat, we'd invariably end up asking them for a 'Lime Mint Cooler'. Just the name is so refreshing. Now that we are back in Bangalore and summer being particularly hot, I thought i'd surprise my RJ with this family favourite drink's homemade version today....:)

(Serves 2)

1. Mint/Pudina leaves - 1 handful
2. Lemon - 1 (whole)
3. Sugar- 1 tbsp(as per taste)
4. Water - 2 cups (pfrbly Cold)
5. Ice - 2-4cubes
6. Yellow/Green food color - a pinch (optional)


Step 1.Extract the juice from the lemons and keep it aside.

Step 2.Grind mint leaves with little water in a mixer until nicely grinded. Then add remaining water,lime juice,sugar and blend it for a minute.

Step 3.Filter it, then mix food color,add crushed ice and serve chilled.
