It’s Friday*, you’ve closed the laptop and you’re ready to unwind for the weekend. A drink sounds tempting, but you don’t fancy a hangover the following morning. Well, let us introduce you to @shisodelicious‘ refreshingly spicy (and Instagram-ready) kombucha mocktail recipe.
*Although this non-alcoholic drink can be enjoyed any day of the week.
Squeeze the juice of the lime into a small bowl.
Wash and grate 1/2 of the lime and add to the same bowl.
Slice the chilli, tear the coriander and add both to the lime juice.
Add the syrup to the juice mixture then use a muddler or spoon to crush the herbs and chilli into a fragrant mixture.
Mix then spread the salt and chilli powder on a small plate.
Moisten the rim of a tumbler glass using the leftover lime then dip the rim of the glass into the salt mixture.
Add ice cubes to the glass.
Pour the muddled mix over the ice, straining out the muddled mix for a smoother mocktail, or including some for a more rustic vibe.
Stir to mix, garnish with coriander and chilli and serve.
1 hot red chilli
Small bunch coriander
1 tbsp syrup (agave or maple)
1 tsp fine sea salt
A good pinch of hot chilli powder
Ginger kombucha or soda to mix
