MINTY PINEAPPLE DRINK

Its just a treat on hot summery day. It relaxes our mind and makes us refresh soon after having a sip. The minty lemony flavoured pineapple juice is just perfect for all pineapple lovers . Do try this guys :).



INGREDIENTS.

1 cup Chopped Pineapple.

5 Mint leaves.

1 tbs Lime juice.

3 tbs Sugar.

5 Ice cubes.

2 tbs Water.

GARNISH.

Pineapple pieces.

Cherries.


METHOD.

In a steel glass add mint leaves , lime juice and water. Crush them with a wooden stick till all the minty flavour comes out of the leaf. Strain the mixture. Keep it a side.

In a mixer, blend rest of the items. Strain them through a strainer and mix with the minty mixture.

Serve the drink into the glasses and top it up with pineapple pieces and cherry. I have inserted one cherry at the bottom. Gives up a nice look.


Enjoy !!
