I planned to prepare couple of mocktails this weekend. But all my plans have changed when the house is filled with guests. I had a great time with family and cooked a big meal for 10+ count. Cooking and serving them made me busy and after the lunch, I was damn tired and not able to purchase anything for my mocktail preparation.
Last night, a random checking at my refrigerator to plan today’s meal, a
spark came in my mind and thought why don’t we prepare a mocktail using
the readily available ingredients at home. What else, I used few of the
ingredients to make a simple yet tasty alcohol free drinks. All were
prepared using the easily available household fruits and veggies. My second entry to Urban Dazzle by IFBM 2014 is Green chilli flavored guava spritzer.
I love to serve this mocktail in this old fashioned green coloured glasses which glassware which would give great appeal for this mocktail.
