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, there was a day when I felt like treating myself to a soothing and refreshing mocktail. The hot weather was too much for me and I wanted something more than a plain glass of water. The weather is certainly temperamental these days - unpredictable and turbulent. As I am now sweating profusely, dark clouds are starting to form and look like another rain fall coming up soon.
There's no exact measurement on the amount of ingredients needed therefore, feel free to add more or less. I used thyme leaves and if the same is not available, you can substitute with mint or lemon balm leaves.
Here's how to make the mango mocktail:
Blend one small ripe mango with one tablespoon of fresh yogurt 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. I did not add sugar so again, it’s up to your own preference.
A sweet, sour and subtle minty mocktail – perfect to beat the heat or as a cooling drink.
