Put the mint leaves in a Vic glass with the sugar and the cane syrup. Stomp with a wooden pestle, using circular movements, until the leaves are crushed and you can smell the mint.  Roll the lime back and forth firmly on the kitchen work surface, so that more juice is released. Squeeze the lime and pour the juice into the glass. Stir and leave to stand for a minute so that the flavours can mix well. Fill the glass to the top with ice cubes. Top with sparkling water, finish off with some extra lime and mint and serve.

The best and healthiest thirst-quencher is of course plain water, but sometimes you just want a little variety. Instead of reaching for soft drinks or mocktails, you can choose flavoured water. This is not only delicious and particularly refreshing, it is also super easy to make yourself. How do you make it?  Well, preferably use a carafe with a wide neck in which you can easily put all the ingredients. Cut the fruit (or possibly the vegetables) you want to use into slices, so that there is a large surface area that can impart flavour, and put them in the carafe, to which you add fizzy or still drinking water.  Leave to infuse for a few hours in the fridge and add ice if necessary when serving.

Our favourite? Mint, ginger and lemon flavoured water, but of course you can make your own personal version with your favourite fruit and/or vegetable.
