We’re coming close to the end of winter and have been blessed with a few scattered sunny days! Blue skies on a weekend is definitely something to celebrate. One sip of this strawberry deliciousness and you could almost pretend it was summer again.
Enjoy this one at your next catch up with friends, BBQ or picnic. For bit more of a buzz, add some white rum or vodka!
- 500gm strawberries
- 1 bunch on fresh mint leaves
- 1/2 cup castor sugar
- 2 limes
- 2 litres of filtered water
Put all the strawberries and the sugar in a blender or food processor and pulse until roughly chopped. You still want the strawberries in chunks and not too fine. Transfer the strawberry mixture to a large pot and tear in the mint leaves. Add the lime slices into the mixture and then top up with the water. Leave the mixture for a few hours to let all the juices infuse.
When it’s ready to serve, strain the juice through a sieve into a serving jug with ice. Add in a few more slices of lime and some mint leaves.
Enjoy on a sunny afternoon!
