Dear readers and friends, here's wishing you all a GREAT 2013 with abundance of good food and smiles. 2012 has been a great year for me - made lots of new friends as well as rekindled my passion for cooking and food styling. In 2013, I hope to share with you more simple recipes and restaurant reviews of good food around KL.
Pop open a bottle of champagne and celebrate in style! And have a bubbly new year ;)
Have a splashing good time.. whatever you do :)
To kick start the new year, I am sharing with you one of my favorite drinks, the Virgin Mojito. Strange but true, I actually prefer the non-alcoholic version to the alcoholic one. This is extremely easy to make, and is a very refreshing drink that you can enjoy on a hot afternoon. And since there is no alcohol involved, my kids get to enjoy it too. :)
If you cannot get your hands on Sprite or 7-Up, you can also use soda water with some caster sugar, added to taste.
A drink for all ages, the Virgin Mojito
