A refreshing drink, so much better than the canned stuff! Adapted from Vegetarian Planet cookbook.
- 1 1⁄4 cups red seedless grapes (or green)
- 1⁄4 cup mint leaf, lightly packed
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 1⁄4 cup lime juice (about 2 limes)
- 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, finely grated
- ice (or frozen green grapes)
- 1 1⁄2 cups seltzer water (soda water)
- Combine fresh grapes, mint leaves, and sugar in a blender. Blend on high speed 10 seconds. Add lime juice and grated ginger; blend again for a few seconds.
- Pour the mix through a fine meshed strainer or sieve into a bowl, pressing with a spatula to extract as much liquid as possible. Pour the grape liquid into two large glasses filled with ice(or frozen grapes). Top each glass with half of the seltzer water(or soda water) and stir. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
- If you would like to use frozen grapes instead of ice, place the grapes in the freezer several hours before making grape soda.
WOW! I used a mix of black and green grapes that I had frozen so that they wouldn't go bad. I loved the scent of the ginger, the lime, oh, everything. I did use Splenda. Great recipe, that I think would work with just about any fruit.
Another exciting drink from sharon. What a winner. This is so good. I have to admit I was a little aprehensive, but the ginger and the mint marry beautifully with the grapes and the lime juice. Simply a wonderful recipe that I will make again and again. This pretty drink was very quick and easy to make, refreshing and full of flavor. Thanks for sharing.
I have to admit, Sharon, that I was too excited and didn't read the recipe, just dumped it all in and blended it! I used a little ginger powder. After blending, and realizing my mistake, I drained it into a container and split it into 2 glasses. The flavors blend beautifully and it's very refreshing. 5 yo liked it too, and the grapes give it a light pink hue. I should buy some Splenda and see if that would work in this, to cut the sugar. I put this into my book#234006.
