Water With A Twist

You may have noticed that Blab underwent a teeny tiny makeover at the weekend...I hope you like it. The design of this page was incredibly simple before so I wanted to keep it like that and stick with the very...grey...theme (I do love a bit of grey). I know it's not very colourful but, I'm really pleased with how it turned out and I really like the fact that it's plain because then hopefully the photos stand out. I'd love to know what you guys think!

I don't dislike drinking water, I just don't drink enough of it! So, in the summer months I like to mix things up a bit and add different flavours to my water. The technique i'm going to show you is brilliant because it's incredibly easy to do and every ingredient added to the water is fresh.

You will need:

Carbonated Mineral Water (or still water if you prefer)
Half a lemon
Half a lime
Fresh mint

I basically just add the lemon, lime and mint to the water to give it that summery kick. I like to crush a wedge of lime at the bottom of the glass with a wooden spoon first to get all of the flavour out and then add the rest. 

I picked the mint from the garden but i'm sure you can get it in supermarkets. You can add as much of each ingredient as you want depending on how citrusy you want the drink to be.

It's as simple as that! This is such a refreshing dink for summer and just livens up your water a bit. I guess it's kind of like a non alcoholic mojito. I'm sure you could add different flavours too if you don't like mint or citrus fruits. 

Let me know if you give it a try or have any recipes for summer drinks!
