We are on the threshold of summer and personally I think it’s better to decide little ahead of time for the seasonal menu so that when you host events your menu is ready and you can whole heartedly indulge in parties rather than fussing over the menu.
It’s important to stay hydrated when the temperatures are high and especially when guests arrive during this season, cool refreshing drinks are definitely expected. Keeping all this in mind I decided to try a mocktail recipe this time.
My idea was that the mocktails should also be healthy so that we can indulge in it guilt free and did not want it to be loaded with sugar syrup. Orange Thyme Mocktail is a refreshing drink with all the natural ingredients.
I used fresh oranges and added some orange extract for flavoring and thyme herbs and blended it smooth, then strained as fine as possible. I used the herb to give a different flavor and look and believe me you will love this beverage. I am always on a look out to add some unique and different ingredient combinations in my recipes and this worked so well that I have already made 2 batches of Orange Thyme Mocktail. Lastly, I mixed the orange puree with pure coconut water. The mocktail is ready. 🙂
Now for the presentation, just rub the rim of the mocktail glass with lime wedges and dip it into ginger sugar mix and fill it up with ice. Pour the mocktail in the glass and serve immediately. Feel free to make it ahead of time and chill in the refrigerator. In that case you may not need ice depending on your preferences. 🙂
So easy and simple and a delicious mocktail ready within minutes. This time again my sister in law was visiting us and I made this Orange Thyme Mocktail for her. She relished it and I was happy again to be able to test my recipe on her and I succeeded again in bringing out the right flavors. 🙂
