Minty Calamansi with Preserved Sour Plum

This is one of my favourite drinks, especially one a hot day. I love to make this and have it when we are having fried or greasy food too. Great to serve it really cold!

  • Juice of 4 Calamansi
  • 300ml Water
  • 3 tablespoon Sugar or to taste
  • 5 Mint Leaves, teared and crushed
  • 2 Preserved Sour Plum

How to do it:
  1. Mix and melt sugar in water. It will be easier to do it using extra fine caster sugar rather than regular caster sugar.
  2. Squeeze in calamansi juice.
  3. Chill till ready to serve.
  4. To serve, add in crushed mint leaves and preserved sour plum to the calamasi water.
  5. It taste better to have the preserved sour plum sit in the drink for a while.
