Instead of buying bottled fruit nectar, make it yourself, and in rapid fashion. Here, fresh strawberries and raspberries are combined with mint leaves for a summery refresher, with a bit of lemon juice to balance the sweetness of the added sugar. A single cinnamon stick lends just a touch of spice to the drink. It's just right for a kid's party, but you can also make it into sangria by adding wine for grown-ups.


  • 150 grams strawberries
  • 50 grams raspberries
  • 4 mint leaves
  • 100 grams sugar (or sweetener)
  • 750 milliliters water
  • 1/2 lemon
  • ice (to taste)
  • 1 cinnamon stick
