FRESH FRUIT MOCKTAIL

The word "Mocktail" is a derivative of two words: 'mock' meaning an imitation of something and the word 'cocktail' meaning a mixed drink. It is made of one or more kinds of beverages such as fruit juices or mixers. It is stirred or shaken before serving.

INGREDIENTS:

Grapes - 200 gms.
Oranges - 2
Apple - 2
Honey - 4 tablespoons
Powdered sugar - 6 tsp.
Lime - 1/2
Crushed ice cubes - optional

METHOD:

Wash all the fruits well and blend each one separately in a blender or juicer alongwith sugar. Filter the pulp to get a clear juice. In the apple juice, squeeze 1/2 a lime to prevent discolouration.

Add water according to the desired consistency. This should not be too watery or too thick.

Now, the interesting part comes. Take a tall glass, pour in some orange juice and place it in the freezer till a layer of ice is formed. Next, pour in the apple juice and again freeze it till a layer of ice is formed on top. Take out and pour in the grape juice and now you need not freeze if serving immediately. (Crushed ice is not necessary as the juice is already slightly freezed).

Add honey and stir while serving. Colourful fresh fruit mocktail is ready. Serve it chilled.
