When it comes to summer coolers i would recommend this one as a natural cooler. I myself tried this for the first time today and could not wait to post it. The freshness of mint taste and the tangy taste of lemon with sugar in it is hard to resist. As a took the sip and gulped it down through my throat every cell of mine could taste its freshness. It provide the instant cooling effect and that aah... feeling comes automatically. The bright green colour of the drink was too attractive with no artificial colouring required. So if you feel tempted by this green coloured drink then just go grab some mint leaves and lemon from a near by store and rest all the things you will find handy at your home. The recipe is for two you may double the quantity if you plan to make out a large batch for friends and all.

  2. Sugar 2 tbsp
  3. Salt 1 tsp
  4. Water 2 glasses

Hope you enjoyed this quick summer cooler and before leaving i would like to draw some benefits of mint so at least people who don't like it much at least for the sake of health benefits can include it in their diet.
