We took the kids to a friend's cottage this week. I always love spending time by the water, helping my kids catch frogs like this one:
Once we had put him back in the lake (and I washed my hands!) I set about making a hard iced tea for the grown-ups. I also made a batch without the vodka to put in the fridge for the kids to grab. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
4 cups boiling water
2 Tbsp Sweet Cheat Spoonable Monk Fruit
2 orange pekoe tea bags
4 fl oz vodka
Fresh lemon juice to taste plus extra lemon wedges for serving
Refreshing mint, tangy lime, and ice cold rum. Mojitos were made for hot summer weekends.
Ingredients: Serves 1
1 teaspoon Sweet Cheat Spoonable Monk Fruit
10 mint leaves
4 lime wedges
1.5 oz rum
3 - 4 ice cubes
club soda or sparkling water
Place a lime wedge and all the mint leaves in a glass. Use a muddler or spoon to crush the leaves and release some of the lime's juice.
Add another two lime wedges and muddle again.
Add Sweet Cheat Spoonable Monk Fruit, ice cubes, and gin and stir to mix. Top up with club soda or sparkling water and garnish with the remaining lime. Sit back, relax and enjoy summer!
