Finally the sun is out as it really should be in what is typically our hot season! January was shockingly cool, and even more startling, rainy!! I love sunny weather and not that the sun is out in full glory, you bet I will be going for more walks to soak it in. Heck, I am completing this blog post from the back yard, on my leso and in the sun. What I wish I had too is this mango blackberry mocktail, that I made a few weeks back and am literally salivating at, and really missing and I get this post finished for you guys to try it out as well.
This is super simple, but I know you are really going to enjoy this!!
Nairobi heat can make you question your entire existence. I love sunny weather that Jan-Feb-Mar brings, but once it turns torturous, I start questioning my own likes LOL. On the day I made this drink, I was having one of those unlucky-stuck-in-the-sun days. I had forgotten my hat at home, neither did I have an umbrella since I left it after I had switched bags that same morning. So that meant I had to do my errands in the sun. The matatu I boarded to get me home only had empty seats on the sun facing side. So after roasting in the CBD, I further baked away in the matatu. The stretch between my bus stage and home is 20 minutes apart, and much of the walk has no shade, so yes, I arrived home severely roasted and 60 shades darker. All I wanted was to shower and gulp down something refreshing and energizing. Because we had plenty of fruits home that day, I decided a mocktail was due. And boy didn’t I enjoy every eager gulp of this!!! As we enter the final weeks of mango season, please make and enjoy my mango melon mocktail. You deserve it!! <3
