At the recently concluded Lakme Fashion Week Lipton had set up a lovely green tea mocktail stall serving up a few lovely green tea concoctions that were absolutely delicious. I visited the stall multiple times a day & it definitely helped me through the long & hectic days by keeping me refreshed & hydrated!

Earlier I didn’t really love the taste of green tea but after trying the delicious concoctions at the stall I’m hooked! And thanks to Lipton I’m sharing the recipes with you so you can make the coolers yourself – Enjoy!

Preparation of Green Tea Extract – For preparing 375 ml of green tea extract, Add 55 g of green tea leaves and allow it to boil. Then, simmer the gas and leave it for half an hour to get concentrated green tea extract.

Take 100 ml of concentrated green tea extract:
  • Add orange juice , lemon juice and 1 drop of vanilla essence.

  • Add sugar syrup or honey to taste*
  • To garnish, Add 2 thin slices of a fresh orange .

*Tip: Remember that addition of sugar/honey will definitely increase the calorific content of this lovely mocktail. It is suggested that you savor the flavour of this beverage with the natural sweetness which is rendered by the orange juice.
