Mint and clementine go so well together and this drink will definitely put some pep in your step and have you dreaming of the summer ahead.
Clementines are preferable to oranges or mandarins for this drink as they have a distinct sweetness. The bubbly soda water, gives this drink a real kick.
This is a delicious drink day or night and a much nicer alternative to a sickly sweet fizzy drink. You could easily make a pitcher of this drink as it’s a cinch to make and a good way to use up a glut of clementines.
• Juice of 3 clementines
• 4 -6 mint leaves sliced into thin chiffonade*
• Soda water, just enough to top up
• 2 cubes of ice
- Juice the clementines in a juicer. Finely chop the mint into chiffonade. *Chiffonade is a French word and basically means thin ragged strips. The best way to achieve chiffonade is to stack the leaves together, roll then up tightly and then cut finely across the rolled leaves with a sharp knife.
- Mix the chopped mint with the clementine juice. Top up the glass with a dash of soda water.
- Add two cubes of ice and serve with a wedge of Clementine on the side of the glass.
