Refreshing lemonade

Now that summer is one month away and the weather here in Cyprus is getting warmer, it’s time for a refreshing home made soft-drink! It is ideal when you will have friends coming over your house! They will love it. This lemonade  is so simple that I  wasn’t going to post it, but sometimes simple is good.

Before you serve  leave it about 15minutes in the refrigerator. If you want the lemonade  sweeter add more  lemonade squash. Also you can create your  own variations and add other fruits or syrups.

Best tea ever

I should admit that I’ m not a big fan of tea! I only drink tea when I’ m sick, when I don’t find anything else to order or when I  visit friends and they offer tea. However, if I am going to have tea, I do prefer herbal green tea or fruit flavoured.


We are often going to this cafe – Coffeeshop Company – close to our apartment next to a shopping mall. I think is an austrian cafe branch here in Bratislava.

The other day we went there for a coffee and I saw a leaflet  of their new fresh herbal tea. It looked fantastic and it seemed like the kind of tea that I could drink. I was curious  so I gave it try. It was savouring!

Of course the same evening I had a sore throat and I got a flu. So I realized that this was the reason why I wanted to have tea at the time.  Needless to say that I passed the next days at the Coffeshop drinking tea! Without a doubt, it was the best tea I ‘ve  ever had!
