Blood Orange, Grapefruit and Lime Spritzer with Mint
Sunday, 2 March 2014
When you live in a city that closes on a Sunday and you want to cook something spontaneous it can be annoying.com. BUT when you casually walk down your street and see that the Turkish supermarket is actually open… it can put a little skip in your step. So as it was a sunny day, I grabbed some blood oranges, grapefruit and limes. Then a touch of mint and some sparkling water. And made these.
Also I wanted to promote the South African supper club at Cafe Futuro in Neukoln which is taking place on Wednesday. 10 euros for a three course meal – super exciting. If you are around, check it out.
I went to my new favourite cafe on Saturday. It’s called Katie´s Blue Cat and they have such amazing coffee and cakes. They even sell golden syrup. And it’s right by Maybachufer on Friedelstrasse… you can people watch on the terasse and warm your face in the sun while eating their fabulous pumpkin and cream cheese whoopie pies. As far as whoopie pies go.. they are outrageously good.

Sorry about the dirty window… I tried to clean it.. which resulted in these smudges! haha.
