Que calor! Or in other words, man it is hot around here! I switched my oven on yesterday morning, to make some bread, which wasn't the greatest idea i've had.
It's hard to stand the heat inside when there is 35°C outside. Having just a salad is way enough with those temperatures, that's why i think it's easier to pay attention to your weight in the summer, you don't feel like having any "comfort food" when it's this hot.
So for a change, and to help you go thru those hot days, i thought a nice drink could do too. I don't drink alcohol, because mostly i don't like it, and it tends to give me a headache. Plus i believe it's actually not good to drink alcohol when it's too hot. So here's a nice cool drink, great for one of those hot summer days.
For 1 drink
10 Fresh Mint Leaves
2 Tablespoon of Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon of Agave Nectar
Put 5 mint leaves and the brown sugar in a mortar and crush them together. Use a long drink glass and but the mint sugar in it.
Cut the lime in two, press the juice of one half and cut the other in circles or cubes. Add the lemon juice in the glass.
Pour the Agave nectar in the glass, then some ice cubes and fill the glass up with sparkling water.
Now add the 5 mint leaves and the lime circles or cubes in your glass, give it a good stir and you're good to go.
