A few weeks ago, ASDA sent me some meat as part of #ASDASummer and I had a BBQ. This time they sent me cake, so I had a tea party!
They sent me one of their rainbow cakes, and three different types of muffins — fizzy cola bottle flavour, double chocolate and gingerbread flavour. I adored the double chocolate one and Garry was a huge fan of the gingerbread flavour.
As for the fizzy cola bottle flavour, I have to say I never thought I’d find a cake that tasted quite as much like fizzy cola bottle sweets. It’s uncanny.
The rainbow cake was my favourite though. Just look how pretty that is!
Anyway, you can’t have a tea party without lemonade. But I didn’t want to just make lemonade — I decided to experiment and add my favourite herb, mint. Mint and lemonade made seem like an odd combination, but it really works. It’s delicious and really refreshing — Garry’s not a fan of lemonade, but even he thought this was yummy.
- 10 lemons
- 500ml water
- 100g sugar
- A small bunch of mint
- Squeeze the juice from the lemons into a blender. Add the water and the sugar
- Finely chop the mint and add to the blender. Mix until everything is fully combined
- Chill until ready to serve
- If you don't want bits of mint in your drink, you can strain the lemonade just before serving
