I woke up realising that Christmas is upon us. This is a good thing. Christmas is a really big deal for me. It has been right from my childhood. I woke up thinking of the menu for Christmas, the spicy jollof rice, pounded yam and afia efere, goat meat pepper soup and all the good things of life. Well, I started thinking of the drinks and how to do things a little different and I decided on having exotic cocktails.
I have the recipe here for a pineapple mint frappe. You can comfortably serve this to your pastor and your parents. It is also delicious enough for your friends.
Why not wow your guests this Christmas with this healthy mocktail?
1 cup diced pineapple
½ cup chopped mint
1 cup pineapple juice
½ cup ice
Sugar and lime wedge to garnish
- Add the diced pineapple, mint, pineapple juice and ice in a blender and blend.
- Wet the outside rim of the glass with a wedge of lime and place upside down on a plate of sugar to coat the rim of the glass (aesthetic purpose).
- Pour the blended pineapple into the glass
- Garnish with a pineapple plant leaf or wedge of pineapple.
Oh yeah, if you are still not convinced, there are a number of health benefits. Pineapple juice is packed with vitamins and enzymes and has many other health benefits like; being anti-inflammatory, a natural antioxidant, an energy booster and aiding digestion.
Also the smell of fresh juiced pineapple is so intense, it will fill your kitchen with the sweetness of this yellow fruit. The juice itself is out of this world
Oh alright! You can also add vodka to this mocktail and turn it to a cocktail.
