Mango 7-up Mocktail


Except for a big cup of coffee in the morning, nothing quenches my thirst quite like water. Occasionally I do have another cup of coffee in the evening but its plain water all the way, including for my meals. That said, once a while I treat myself; a soothing and refreshing mocktail.  Just like some people I know, weather is certainly temperamental these days - unpredictable and turbulent. As I'm now sweating profusely, dark clouds are forming and seem  like another rain fall soon.

This drink: simply put together, I mean the exact measurement of ingredients. Thus, more or less. I had a little bunch of thyme leaves and if the same isn't available, have a go with mint or lemon balm leaves.

Here's how to make the mango mocktail:

Blend one small ripe mango with one tablespoon of fresh yoghurt and a few thyme leaves.  Pour into a cocktail glass, add 7-up, top with ice and garnish with a sprig of thyme for the final presentation. Sugar; up to you. 
A sweet, sour and subtle lemony mocktail – perfect to beat the heat or as a cooling drink.

  3. Refreshing and healthy! I normally make it without 7-Up but I use sparkling water and a small squeeze lime or lemon for the extra zing.
