Lime-Orange Mocktail- Refreshing Mocktail

Refreshing to the core…

Ditch the canned and bottled juices and have freshly squeezed fruit juices, you can mix and match ; it will refresh you, quench your thirst and is healthy.

This mocktail is one of my favorites- the ingredients are always available in my refrigerator. Freshly squeezed lime juice, orange juice, grated ginger and mint leaves- this combo to me is a match made in paradise. Perfect Summer drink. I’ve also added soaked basil seeds or sabja or tukmaria, these are an excellent coolant and has remarkable health benefits too.

Get refreshed!!!
