December is easily the only month where it is acceptable to have a drink roughly everyday for the entire month (Not saying this is what I did, but for any of you that did do this – it’s perfectly ok!)
This post will share a few of the my favourite drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) that I’ve made/tried over the December period and my interpretation of the ingredients used.
Ingredients Bacardi Superior Rum (Quantity to your liking) Generous squeeze of Lime Juice Fresh Lime 2tsps of Caster Sugar 50ml of Passion Juice Mint Leaves Soda Water to top Crushed Ice Sprig of Mint Fresh Passion Fruit Half to top Put mint leaves, sugar and lime juice into a tall glass. Stir vigorously and fill with ice. Add the rum and passion fruit juice and mix well. Top with soda water Throw in a mint sprig, lime quarter and passion fruit half to finish.
Raspberry Sangria (Homemade) Ingredients (makes 8) 5tbsps of Caster Sugar Juice from 4 Limes 2 Cups of Fresh Raspberries 75ml Amaretto 1 Bottle of Chardonnay Soda Water or Sparkling Lemonade for topping glasses individually Lemon Slices Stir the sugar, lime juice, 1 cup of raspberries and amaretto until the raspberries are fully incorporated and soft. Pour raspberry mix into a large jug, half fill the jug with semi-crushed ice and top with your chosen bottle of White Wine, second cup of berries and lemon slices. Pour into individual sugar coated glasses and top with sparkling lemonade.
Iced Tea (because you can never go wrong with it) Ingredients Pot of freshly brewed Black Tea Sweetening Syrup Lemon Slices Ice Fill a large plastic cup or glass with ice. Pour hot tea over ice, throw in lemon slices and add syrup depending on acquired taste. My favourite Iced Tea in Nairobi would have to be from Java! So good, under 250shillings and definitely a necessity in the heat!
