Truly refreshing

We are starting to get really nice weather in the early mornings and evenings. I can actually take baby Fizzle out to the garden in the morning to play on his bike. As I was out with him yesterday sitting in the garden I craved some infused water with lime and mint.It was so refreshing! I would highly recommend it for mornings at the Chaleh.

Lime, Cucumber and Mint

1 lime, thinly sliced

7.5cm (3in) piece cucumber, peeled, halved lengthways and finely sliced
2 large sprigs of fresh mint

1.5 litres of water

1/2 tsp toasted sesame oil

Method:

Put the lime, cucumber, mint and water in a large jug (or divide between two smaller jugs).

Cover and chill overnight. Stir before serving.

Citrus Refresher

1 lemon, thinly sliced
1 lime, thinly sliced
1 orange, thinly sliced
1.5 litres water

Method:

Put the sliced fruit and water in a large jug (or divide between two smaller jugs)

Cover and chill overnight. Stir before serving.

Enjoy!
