Yummy Summer Drinks

As the weather heats up, we’re all looking for something more interesting than water, but not coke, to quench our thirsts with. Here’s a few I’ve tried recently…

GC Raw Juices. All with less than 10g of sugar per 100mL, these aren’t just ordinary fruit juices. They have veges too, without that vege taste :)

My fave was the Berry Burst with its sneaky beetroot juice (great for blood pressure), which I downed after a hot and humid run. Rish went the Citrus Crush which was a little like a breakfast juice, while my flatmate felt the Pine Punch was best served on a Friday afternoon with ice and vodka ;)

Coconut water

Next up, we have the box of C Coconut Water that arrived last week. A Sydney based company, bringing this drink to us, with no added sugar. Not to my taste, but Rish has been guzzling it!

Herrljunga apple and pear cider

Lastly, Herrljunga’s +46 Apple and Pear Cider. From sweeden, and for only $12 for a four pack from BWS this week, goes down a treat!

So tell me, what are your summer refreshments of choice?

The juices were received from Soup to review, the Coconut water was won, and the cider was bought on a whim

Summer Dinners

Summer dinners for me involved something small and cooked, surrounded with a huge amount of salad!

Of course, it’s even better to get Rish out on the BBQ :) That’s where salmon, steaks and sausages come in!

Wine... retoxing?
Enjoyed a few glasses of wine… retoxing a little after my week away ;) The wine’s a sparkling sav blanc, and the strawberries tasted awesome after soaking in it ;) Picked those up for less than $2 a punnet at Aldi.

Last night I made the cherry tomato and feta tarts from the Golden Door cookbook :) Once I figured out defrosting the pastry they were nice and simple. Next step will be finding a place to buy frozen egg white here in Canberra so Rish doesn’t have to get through so many yolks!
