How to make Minty Apple Cider Cooler?

Here, I have used BRAGG’s Organic Raw Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar with the ‘Mother’. But why Apple Cider?… Because it renders distinctive flavour to the summer cooler. With its anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties and aiding in weight loss, lowering blood pressure, Apple Cider enhances the nutritious quotient of the drink.

On the other hand, Fresh mint, as we all know is a soothing herb…well-known for its health benefits like easy digestion, relief from stomach inflammation. It greatly comforts us during hot humid weather.

Inclusion of honey brings its own health benefits… it keeps us hydrated for a long time…a good alternative to other forms of sweeteners. Here’s the recipe for this Minty Apple Cider Cooler that can be made in a jiffy.

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.
