Each summer we drive up to the central coast to spend a week with my whole family. We have been doing it for several years, and it is always a highlight of our year. The afternoons are always hot and humid, so a fresh cold drink always goes down well. In my family, we don’t really drink alcohol, but we do love a cold lemonade or mixed drink. The adults enjoy virgin mojitos whilst the kids love fresh raspberries, cranberry juice, and lemonade (I think it’s the red). I call it a Cranberry Raspberry Sparkle, because it sounds fancy for the kids, and I am posh like that!
Limes (lemons also work, though limes are better)
1. Thinly slice the limes.
2. Place the lime slices and mint into glasses or a jug.
3. Top with lemonade and ice and enjoy!
Cranberry and Raspberry Sparkle
Raspberries (fresh are best, though frozen are good too)
1. Place the raspberries in the bottom of a glass.
2. Add the cranberry juice (about 1/4 of the glass)
3. Fill with lemonade.
