Limbu pani

 

Fresh lime juice is one of the most refreshing drinks in the world. You can make it with still or sparkling water, or use it as the base for a mojito!

5 limes (1 per serve)

10 teaspoons of raw sugar

Half a teaspoon of finely grated ginger (optional)

Sparkling water (optional)

Mint leaves

Place sugar in a bowl and add half a cup of boiling water, and the ginger, if using.  Stir until sugar is dissolved.  Squeeze limes into a jug and add the sugar mixture.  Strain into another jug, and add still or sparkling water to taste (around a litre).  Tear up a handful of mint leaves and stir into juice.
