Pineapple Lemonade & Strawberry Slush

As you might be knowing ,that the owner of lovely blog and a dear blog friend Coffee is organizing JFI-Lime & lemon this month . With sure to get many tasty entries with sour taste I thought to send this along to her with sweet and sour taste .

Strawberry slush and Pineapple lemonade – two simple and refreshing drinks are my entry to JFI this month .


Pineapple Lemonade :

Ingredients :
1 cup pineapple cubes(tastes best with fresh cut pineapple ),
2 tsp lime/lemon juice ,
2 tsp Sugar(use according to the sweetness you like) ,
1 glass fresh water

Method:

In a mixture bowl , grind pineapple cubes to fine paste adding little water needed to grind it all smoothly. Strain it using juice strainer, in a separate bowl, take water add sugar to it , mix it till sugar dissolves and then add lime juice with pineapple juice mic well and serve , in hot days serve along with some ice.


Strawberry Slush :

Ingredients:
1 cup fresh strawberry ,
1 tsp lemon juice ,
2 tsp honey,
4-5 mint leaves (optional- it will not change the color , but will add a nice flavor to drink).

Method:

Wash and cut strawberries in to halves, take all the ingredients in to a mixture bowl, and grind them all adding a glass of water to make it juice like consistency .

When crushed to fine thin paste like, strain it using a juice strainer to a glass and serve it as you like.

With both these drinks around in summer days, I bet you will have heaven on earth :) )

Both of these drinks are the result behind the thought of creating something different for coffee’s JFI this month . See this is what blog events do to us :) , a lovely side effect of blog events Isn't it ? :)

Thank you Coffee , for choosing Lime/Lemon for JFI this month . I enjoyed making and drinking this lovely drinks, you made my summer a party now : ) ).
