April 10, 2019 Motions and Emotions 3 Comments

April was totally hot this time and we were trying all possible remedies to cool ourselves. Every summer I prepare different types of summer cooler to beat the heat and this year was also no exception. This time mangoes are late in the market but other summer fruits were flooding the market. There was good supply of pineapple, muskmelon, watermelon and other melons.  This time we enjoyed pineapple a lot. Normally, we enjoy pineapple just like that with the sprinkle of little salt. I also prepare pineapple juice but this time I tries a perfect summer cooler virgin pineapple mint mojito.



Mojito is a famous Cuban drink which contains white rum, lime juice, soda, and mint leaves. It is a cocktail. However, I prepare non-alcoholic mojito which is also called virgin mojito. This time I tried mojito with a tropical fruit pineapple and virgin pineapple mint mojito tasted just awesome. Combination of pineapple and mint is really refreshing. If you are arranging a party at home you can surely try this Virgin pineapple mint mojito. When pineapples are in season, you must try this interesting mocktail recipe.
