Ever heard of chilli wine in a mojito? This refreshing recipe will help you relax in the sweltering heat.
As the month of June progresses, several parts of India experience heat wave-like conditions. In such a scenario, staying hydrated is imperative. Medical experts usually recommend drinking plenty of water and avoiding direct contact with the sun. Lemon-based drinks are good sources of antioxidants and the citrusy flavour is quite a relief during summers. There’s another delicious fruit that can be muddled into a cocktail for summers. From the berry family, it is cranberries. The sweet and juicy berries are dark red in colour and have a tart taste.
Cranberries not only taste really well, but also come with several health benefits. These include improved digestion, reduction in inflammation and as well as several antioxidants. A great source of fibre, these berries make for a delicious mojito too. It is also suggested that one should avoid greasy and oily foods as they not only make us lethargic but also produce heat in the body. Summer drinks or coolers come to the rescue in such situations. Those fruits and vegetables with high water content are preferred over others. Even mint leaves are often used in summer drinks to give them a tinge of freshness.
