Summer is right here and am so excited to try some cool and delicious drinks . To begin to drink thirst I chose the Mocktails theme for this weeks BM .. Mocktails are my all time fav when the sun is up shinning on your head , to keep you hydrated and cool this is perfect way to quench your thirst. Me and my sibling used to wait for summer just to enjoy some palmyra fruit/ Nungu in tamil . The peeling process is lil tedious but the fruit inside is worth taking the pain ..When I was thinking on what shall make in mocktails i first checked my fridge and found tender coconut and Nungu tins so just combined them to make this refreshing drink..Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#40.
Mocktails are like any fruit juice which does not include any alcohol where as Cocktails include Alcohol in them.The name by itself Means imitate that means they are imitating cocktails.Many cocktails can be converted to mocktails but substituting non alcoholic drink these drink are prefixed by " Virgin".
