Make your own: summer drinks with Green Tea Citrus syrup
Enjoying a summer drink in the backyard, with Van de Boom’s Green Tea Citrus syrup works just fine. This syrup makes the tastiest iced teas and mocktails in no time. A welcome treat during the hot summer days for young and old!
Enjoying the backyard
It is all still very uncertain what we will do this summer. We will stay home? Going abroad?
What I do know is that if the weather is nice, we will spend a lot of time in the backyard.
Make your own drink
When the sun is out, we fill the pool in the backyard and lie on our air mattress enjoying a summer drink in hand! That summer drink we just make ourselves with the syrups from Van de Boom.
Syrup is for children anyway?
I actually drink a lot of tea and would never just take a glass of lemonade or syrup. My kids on the other hand definitely drink this and love it. When I received the new syrup from Van de Boom, I naturally wanted to taste it for myself and found out that you can make many more summer drinks from this than just lemonade.
A glass of iced tea or a nice mocktail
Because this Green Tea Citrus is a syrup with which you can easily and quickly make a refreshing glass of iced tea or tasty mocktail. A welcome treat during the hot summer days for young and old alike. I drank the syrup as iced tea with water and ice cubes and made mocktails out of it.
Both variants are incredibly tasty and deliciously fresh!
Making your own mocktails
What I do now on a summer day, is give the boys this Green Tea Citrus syrup in a big glass with water and ice and for myself I make a Mojito with lime and mint. This is just a little more festive for myself than just the syrup and this Mojito is very easy to make yourself.
MOJITO WITH LIME AND MINT
What you need?
- mint leaves
- 1 teaspoon of sugar
- 1 tablespoon of lime juice
- a splash of green tea citrus syrup
- ice cubes
- (sparkling) water
Crush the mint leaves with a mortar and mix with the sugar, lime juice and syrup. Add the ice cubes and give it a good shake. Pour it into a tall glass.
Add water and stir.
A special recipe made for Van de Boom
These bottles of Green Tea Citrus syrup are easy to have around the house anyway, because you can make a perfect glass of iced tea in no time! But it is also easy to take with you should you go to the park or playground. Delicious as lemonade on its own, but extra delicious with fresh ingredients such as lime, ginger and mint.
