Reminiscence and another drink recipe- Soda Mint Lime


I don’t know how many of you made it to Jo’Burger’s pop up restaurant, who created a chicken loving monster within me. Jo’Burger’s take on addictive chicken was the phrase being bandied around. Their take was a pretty good take. I visited no less than 5 times I believe, dragging along people by the single or the half dozen to make myself feel better about gobbling about 5 chickens in a go. I’m hard pushed to decide whether I preferred the soy garlic chicken or the wings.. They were both amazing. I spent quite a few minutes with Jennifer today discussing how we can fulfil our new life dream of finding out how they made it taste so darn good. Hints anyone?

A few mobular telephone photos (you remember my apt got burgled so I had no camera, sigh) shall give you an idea, when viewed in order, as to what the general consensus of our table was regarding the food…



Well. We enjoyed it anywho..


So the other thing we were rather partial to were the drinks. I absolutely adored the lemonade, which is going to be next on my list to make! The other one that we really liked was the soda mint lime. I had to try this one out during one or two daycent days as they call them here in the shticks. Result!

Lovely isn’t it!

Here’s what you need to make mah version of this lovely refreshing concoction, recommended for garden parties and barbeques in particular. I’m dedicating this to Jennifer and her current addiction to smelling mint. One small step away from the hard stuff like basil, or even thyme if you ask me…

  • 2-4 limes – very dependent on personal tastes
  • 2 litres water
  • A dash of soda water – I literally poured in a dash so not sure exactly how much but remember you can always add more to taste!
  • A small handful of mint leaves. My mint is quite strong so I don’t tend to add too much til I taste it
  • Ice cubes
What to do
  1. Get a large jug or bottle, add your water and soda water.
  2. Squeeze in two limes – roll them against the counter before cutting to get as much juice as possible out of them
  3. Add in your mint leaves, give it a good stir and bash the leaves up a bit
  4. Taste – here is where it comes down to personal taste, I like it limey with a hint of mint. Which I think has a nice ring to it.
Serve with ice and lots of it. And a straw! And as always, enjoy…
