The last i visited the fruit market, i bought back cartons of strawberries at a pricey price. Mind the word pricey, will you? Some of those red beauties were still sitting in my fridge and next to them was this orange duo calling out to me. I got them out of the fridge and decided to share them with Mr.P. And then, i thought why not combine them and make something? I dint want to make a cake or pie. Mind you, it was 11 in the night. That time of the night when you are supposed to be cuddled up with a book in your bed. Not the time to contemplate prodding your oven. And that s how this mocktail came to be born.

How To Make It?
Peel the oranges, discard the pith and make a slit in each of the orange slices vertically and open them to remove the seeds. This may sound time taking but is actually not if you enjoy eating the oranges as you go.
Place the oranges, strawberries, sugar and mint leaves in a blender and blend to make a smooth puree.
Add water and blend again.
Check for sweetness. Add more sugar if desired.
Top with ice cubes and serve cold.
