We asked Enver’s owner Terri Manolis to send us a seasonal recipe to share and she happily obliged by sharing her favourite drinks to enjoy during the hot weather spell. And it sure has been hot!
The Strawberry Jive features fresh Ontario strawberries while they are still in season (don’t wait too long!) And the Mojito, Manolis tells us, is so refreshing made with Apple Flats sour mix that you can conveniently pick up Enver’s or Market Fresh if you are in Guelph. Apple Flats is two brothers from Wellesley using crab apples for jelly and the sour drink mix which is low in sugar. Thank you to Terri for these cool recipes. Like she says “it’s hard to think of cooking in this heat!”
