Drinks are on me: Mock Champagne

Fancy a drink? Need something summery to remind of you the warmer days up ahead?

Something bubbly? With a hint of apples, lemon and mint?  

Here you go: 

Mock Champagne

Juice from 5-6 lemons
6-8 tbsp sugar
2 Granny Smith Apples
2 liters unsweetened apple juice, chilled
1 liter sparkling water, chilled
handful of mint leaves, chopped

Stir the sugar and lemon juice in a small saucepan over low heat until the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and let cool.

Cut the apples into small chunks. 

Mix the juice, sparkling water and lemon syrup together in a large pitcher. Add the chopped apples and mint leaves. Serve.

    Yum, that sounds so refreshing. My kids would love that on a hot day. Doesn't anything made with sparkling water magically taste better? :o)
