How to make Sugarcane and Kiwi Mocktail?
Except Kiwi, rest of the ingredients is procured from my backyard garden. Extracting juice from sugarcane at home is always an amazing experience for us. The process is very simple and worth the effort as the juice obtained is hygienic than it is available in the market. Peel and chop sugarcane into 2 inch pieces. Pound them in a pestle and mortar (ammikkal). Extract juice by crushing it with hand as far as possible. Then grind the pounded pieces in a mixer grinder with little amount of water. Strain the juice using a fine mesh. Refrigerate it until use.
