I like to mix it up a little, sometimes in the summer I add a little lychee juice and I’ve been known to muddle up some kaffir lime leaves or a little zip of flavoured ice cubes.
Which Brings me to the point.I can’t wait to add a dash of Glenda’s local infusions, Glenda Maes who coincidently is an amazing branch in our local food tree with her many achievements in the food industry, is about to launch The Pomegranate Tree, cordials for the mature palate.
