The weather these few days is really hot and humid. I made this cold and refreshing drink to beat the heat. This is one of my favourite childhood drink. It is a bit sour , a bit salty and a bit sweet. The taste will vary depending on the type of sour plum and honey you use. There are so many types of sour plum and I prefer those which are slightly salty.
Ingredients (serves 1)
3 sour plums ( amount can vary depending on your preference )
1-2 tablespoons honey or sugar (amount can vary according to your preference)
3 limes ( you could use more or less )
some ice cubes
300ml of water
50ml hot water
1. Soak the sour plums in hot water for 5-10 minutes. It will expand and release the flavour.
2. Add 300ml water, honey and lime juice to the sour plum mixture. Stir well to dissolve honey.
3. Add some ice cubes and there you have it , a refreshing lime sour plum drink.
4. You can skip step 1 and use 350ml of water at step 2. In this case, you can use a spoon to stir and press the sour plums to help release the flavour.
