Lime Mint cooler is a no surprise recipe, we all know that one of many Mint properties is it helps in digestion and soothes the stomach, hence making it a must have during Summers. Lime is common and must have ingredient in the kitchen. Not that I never tried this cooler, but for me, it was more of Lime juice and less of Mint leaves.
The first time I ever tried this cooler was on my trip to KL, Malaysia, yes and my immediate thought follows "Malaysia, Truly Asia", a beautiful multi-cultural country. Since this was an official trip, we checked in to Cyberjaya which was near to office, but most of the tourist attractions are in and around KL (Kuala Lumpur), which we planned to visit on weekends. It had to be a well-planned trip since there would be a sudden change in weather from hot and sticky to rainy.
Any new place we visit, we always prefer to walk around to explore all attractions and same was KL. So we managed to see most tourist attractions in and around KL. Being a foodie, we also tried different cuisines but one common drink on most of the menu was Lime Mint cooler.
When we ordered I knew it's a simple juice with lots of Lime juice and few Mint leaves, like any other ordinary lime juice that will help me beat the heat off for some time. There are very few times that I love being wrong, when our order was served, it was in a tall glass filled with ice, beautiful green color as the Mint leaves were well blended and every sip kept me guessing, whether Lime and Mint are in equal quantity or no
Next few days of my trip, Lime-Mint cooler was a must have on every order, which means I have tasted this cooler in nearly all restaurant in and around Cyberjaya :)
