Saudi champagne - My 100th post

I've reached my 100th post quite late. I had many reasons; I was not well and my site had many technical problems too. I was into food blogging on and off, though I never stopped trying new recipes though my trials were mostly towards easy recipes and for my toddler son.

This trial is again a simple but has become our favorite now. I've never had a refreshing drink like saudi champagne. When my Hus told me about this champagne, I was shocked and asked is champagne available in saudi? He told me this is like a juice cocktail prepared with fruit juice and slices. He had this drink in a saudi restaurant and so could remember the ingredients. When I browsed for this champagne, I almost got the same results. I don't really know why it got its name, may be, because of the addition of soda. I made this just to celebrate my 100th post.  The fruit juice and slices infused with mint leaves gives a unique and refreshing taste.



 
Ingredients:

1 part apple juice
3 parts soda
Few mint leaves
Few apple and orange slices

Preparation:

Chop apple and orange into slices.

Method:

In a jar, add apple juice and mint leaves. Shake it well.

Add few orange and apple slices. Leave it for 10-15 minutes.

Add soda when you are about to serve.

Notes: 

Use fresh mint leaves and use apple juice preferably with sugar. Soda can also be replaced by sparkling water.
