Mexican Feast: Citrus Fizz Recipe
Inspired by last week’s trip to Wahaca in Covent Garden I decided to cook up Mexican feast using my Mexican Food Made Simple Book. I will post the recipes up over the next couple of days but I’m staring with this one in which I tried to re create the drink I had at Wahaca. While It doesn’t contain chilli it goes great with spicy food and is really refreshing. I guess if you wanted to add some heat it would work with a bit of ginger and maybe even a slice of chilli.
If I’m honest it wasn’t quite as good as the one I had in London, It wasn’t quite as minty, so if anyone has any tips for getting more flavour from the mint then please let me know.
You could also always sweeten it up with a little bit of sugar or sugar syrup but I didn’t think it needed it.
Ingredients for 1 Citrus Fizz
- 2 limes
- Few sprigs of mint.
- 300ml fizzy water.
- Ice cubes
- Roll the limes on a chopping board, squeezing gently, this helps you get more juice out, cut the limes in half and squeeze the juice out into a glass, slice the left over lime skin into 4, set 2 pieces aside and bin the other 2.
- Pick the mint leaves from the stems and tear into the glass, gently bash up with a spoon.
- Add some ice to the glass and bash up again.
- Add the 2 lime slices followed by the water, give it a good stir then enjoy.
