Summertime Fruit and Mint Cooler as seen on The Everyday Show

Makes 2 drinks


1 fresh kiwi or papaya – peeled and cut into chunks

5 fresh mint leaves

1-2 teaspoons raw sugar

3-4 ice cubes

1 cup soda water


Put the fruit, mint and sugar in a cocktail shaker or glass jar. Mash the ingredients together with a muddling utensil, wooden juicer, or the bottom of a wooden spoon. When all the ingredients are well pulverized, add the ice and the soda water to the mixture. Shake gently. Pour out the liquid into a fun cocktail glass using the strainer in the cocktail shaker or a hand held strainer if you used the glass jar.  Or, you can add the mash to the drink and serve it in a mojito glass if preferred.  Serve chilled and enjoy!
