Friday Night Mocktails

It’s friday night and I am done with all my work for the day.  Derek just got home too (yay!).  It is a BEAUTIFUL summer evening.  We have nothing planned tonight other than sitting in our backyard and catching up.

Aaaahh I love long and slow summer evenings!

To complete the picture, I decided to make a refreshing mocktail to sip on until the mosquitoes come out (or the little family of racoons that live in our big tree)

I totally just went through my fridge and realized that I have some nice ingredients for my celebratory friday-night-yay-it’s-still-summer-drink.

Carbonated Spring Water (Sodium Free no less, hehe!)

Frozen pieces of mango (left over from the fish tacos)

A couple of cute key limes (on their last legs)

Fresh ginger (chop up fine before putting into the drink)

And there you have a nice and refreshing little drink!

So if your week has been hectic and you are feeling squashed and depleted like the poor little key lime below, make yourself a little mocktail and kick up your feet.  If anyone’s looking for me, I will be out on the deck…

    Hi Nienke, slim idee om mango te vries. Gaan dit gerus doen sodra dit hier in die winkels is. En ook die drankie probeer.
