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 it's plain water all the way. Including for all my meals. That said, once a while I treat myself over a soothing and refreshing mocktail like this one - simple to put together as there's no exact measurement. More or less as per taste. I had a little bunch of fresh thyme but if the same isn't available, use mint, lemon balm or other suitable refreshing herb.
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.
It's a sweet, sour and subtle lemony mocktail – perfect to beat the heat or as a cooling drink.
