Iced Apple and Lime

I love to make all kinds of drinks at home (see my Berry Kiss cocktails from Valentine’s or last year’s pink lemonade) and with this heatwave that we’ve been having; I’ve been making more and more.

One of my favourites is this iced apple and lime. It’s incredibly refreshing, makes a great alternative to fizzy drinks and it’s non-alcoholic so everyone can enjoy it! If you make these in jam jars, you can just screw the lid on and shake them up. If you’re opting for proper glasses, use a cocktail shaker to mix these (failing that, just stir it well!).

Start by putting together a simple lime syrup using equal parts lime juice and sugar. Dissolve the sugar in the lime juice over a medium heat, stirring constantly. Don’t allow this to boil for too long or the syrup will thicken. 

Set the syrup aside until it has cooled a bit and then divide it among the jars or pour it in to your cocktail shaker. Add in plenty of ice followed by equal parts apple juice and sparkling water and finish off with an extra squeeze of lime. Shake well, serve and savour!
