The refreshing drink with herbs from the garden
It's hot, it's sunny! And I totally appreciate all that life brings, so much happiness!
And to refresh myself a bit, what could be better than a drink with the magnificent herbs that grow all around me!
For 1 glass
- A few Thai basil leaves
- A few mint leaves
- 8-10 raspberries
- 2 tbsp. tablespoon lemon (or lime) juice
- 1 tbsp. tablespoon maple syrup
- About 3/4 cup lemon sparkling water (or regular and add more lemon juice)
Place the Thai basil, mint and raspberries in a glass. Crush and grind well to bring out the flavors of the herbs.
Add lemon juice and maple syrup. Mix.
Add sparkling water and enjoy in a magical setting (there is no definition for magical setting, it's the one that's magical in your head!).
*If you want to add alcohol, a little rum would be delicious!
**The flower on the drink is an edible monarda, whose delicious petals taste like sweet mint.
