Spring Spritz and Kilner Giveaway

Green juice


The past few days there has certainly still been that wintery chill in the air but with the sun out buds are starting to show, crocuses have grown, the daffodils have opened up and the days are getting that little bit longer each day. You can sense the change and the feeling of spring is slowly starting to filter into my soul. I really want to get out of the gloominess of winter and burst into colour and thought a nice little Spring Sprtiz would be perfect for that so I had some fun in the kitchen today and came up with this refreshing little number.


lemon and lime


Green Spring Spritz

1 Apple
1/3 of a Cucumber
1/4 lime
Mint leaves
Lemon slice
Ice cubes
Sparkling water.

Place an apple (I used a Gala), 1/3 of a cucumber, quarter lime and a few mint leaves into a juicer. Pour into a glass with some ice and top up with sparkling water, add some slices of lemon and there you go - simple as anything.

This drink is wonderfully refreshing, full of goodness and is great for those in need of a health kick or on a detox - although you could always add a shot of vodka should you feel the need (although of course not so healthy then) and turn it into a bit of a summery cocktail and would look fantastic in a Kilner Glass dispenser like the one below from NuCasa


Kilner


Wouldn't this just be perfect for fresh juice, outside, with friends, having a little shindig? Best of all is I have one of these 8L Kilner Glass dispensers to giveaway to one lucky reader.
