You can think of this recipe as a sophisticated form of the ‘Ice-Lolly’ that kids enjoy in scorching summers. Nothing beats the heat than enjoying yummy slushes in your favorite fruit-flavor. Fruit-Slushes (partially-frozen, flavored icy drinks) are very easy to make at home and much more healthier than the store-bought ones made with artificial flavors. As you serve it in a glass, slushes melt slowly, making it last longer than the usual summer drinks. I am sharing with you today, a ‘Blackberry & Green apple Slush Mocktail’. As compared to the ice lollies where the ice is frozen separately and syrup is poured on top of it, I have frozen the homemade fruit-syrups and have made a fused Mocktail out of them. Try it on a hot Summer afternoon. The deliciousness of this unique drink will be something that you will simply love! Enjoy!
1 cup fresh Blackberries
1-1.5 cups Juice of fresh Green-Apples
1/4 cup fresh Mint leaves
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
3 tbsn sugar
2 cups Soda/Carbonated water
Firstly, prepare your home-made Blackberry syrup! In a pan, combine your washed blackberries and sugar. Put on low heat.
After the fruit turns mushy, add a squeeze of lemon juice and if needed, some water if the syrup looks too thick. Turn off the gas when you get the syrupy consistency and let cool. Sieve and pour into an Ice-tray. Set aside.
Next, prepare your Mint and Green-Apple concoction. Mint gives a fragrant flavor to any cool drink as well as gives a lovely green color to this particular slush.
In a blender, combine your Green-Apple juice, mint leaves and fresh lemon juice to a uniform liquid. Set aside. Add sugar if needed.
Next, freeze both of your home-made liquids in separate ice trays for 5-6 hours.
When you are ready to prepare your Mocktail, blend each of your flavored ice-cubes separately with equal quantities of Soda. You will get separate jars of 2 flavors of icy slushes- Blackberry slush and The Green-Apple & Mint Slush.
To assemble your Slush Mocktail, carefully pour both your slushes one after the other into wine-glasses or regular glasses. Insert a straw and serve immediately without mixing! Enjoy!
- You can substitute Green Apple juice with Kiwi juice for the same green coloured slush!
- You can use store-bought fruit juices instead of fresh juices in your mocktails, but fresh ones are highly recommended.
