Coconut Water Lemonade

Back to my office again and sitting on my desk and sipping on the lemon flavoured soda!

So folks, what's up? :-) 

So ok I am having lemon soda and i have a coconut tree in front of my window, this takes me back to a drink I once made at home.

I am a huge fan of coconut water and lemon.

So here's my recipe combining these 2 drinks. Enjoy! :-)

1. Two tender coconuts
2. Two lemons
3. one tbsp sugar.
4. 3-4 mint leaves.

Ingredients & Method : (2 servings)

1. Two tender coconut ( ask the Shop keeper to give you the ones with thin inner lining or coconut flesh, you know the jelly like consistency one.. mmmm at that stage the coconut water is just right tasting! 
2. Take out the water ( i would recommend u ask the shop keeper only to extract the water and inner lining and bring it back home in a bottle and container, coz lord knows how difficult it is to cut open a coconut without those spl dangerous looking knives! hehe)
3. So ok once you are back home, keep the coconut water in fridge and let it cool.
4. Squeeze out the juice of two lemons in a bowl/jug and add 1 tbsp sugar, just one is good enough. If you like you can add a spoon of some berry syrup or crush although I like the strong coconut flavour.
5. Take the tender coconut lining and chop it as finely as you can. add to the lemon sugar mixture.
6. take 3-4 mint leaves and wash them properly. dry them up and turn them over, now we all have those mortar and pestle at home, if we don't a rolling pin will do. Gently place the pestle on the leaf and exert pressure and rub it gently, remember we dont want to tear the leaf, the pressure should be just enough to expose the inner layers a bit( the idea is to get a mint taste but not to strong.)
7. Transfer the lemon tender coconut sugar mixture into the jug and add the cool cool coconut water, drop in the mint leaves and mix thoroughly.
8. Pour in the drink and what you have is an exciting fresh refreshing drink!

You can even add chaat masala or jal jeera powder if you want the Indian masala flavor.

Hope you all will enjoy it. :-)
