In Hong Kong two of the most amazing drinks I had were non-alcoholic: a fabulous proper lemonade from Classified in the Mid Levels; and a wonderful pureed mango drink at saigon saigon in Causeway Bay.

I came back all enthused to try new drinks and somehow came across a 38 things to drink instead of booze buzzfeed article (yes, I know), with pix and links to recipes. And surprisingly the drinks all looked pretty gosh-darned excellent.

I was particularly dazzled by no. 31: pineapple mint punch, so I clicked through to the recipe to add the ingredients to the shopping list. As an aside, the recipe source (love food eat) is a really lovely blog.

The ingredients are listed as follows:
1 cup sugar syrup
2 cups fresh pineapple
5-6 springs of fresh mint
2 cups of club soda
1 cup of white rum
Juice of 1-2 limes

Clearly buzzfeed and I have rather different definitions of booze!

I’ll be making that when I’m back to the drinking, in the interim, I think I’m going to have a crack at spicy ginger soda.
