Fathers Day

Pomegranate Basil Mojito ~  
for Fathers Day 

Fathers are wonderful people...Too little understood, 
And we do not sing their praises ,as often a we should ....
But fathers are just wonderful , in a million different ways 
To make us happy today and everyday !!! 
Little Food Junction wishes all fathers  a very Happy Fathers Day.
While half the world is still busy celebrating the occasion , we 
from the other side of the globe would love to share our take for the 
occasion. The tiny handmade card  accompanied with a cool non 
alcoholic mojito was perfect to beat the summer heat and swing in
 to the celebrations. 

The summer season is the hottest time throughout the Indian subcontinent.

Unlike western summers , the Indian summer is not about colorful days 
and warm wonderful afternoons but about unbearable scorching heat ,
 dusty winds and dripping sweat . Chilled beverages accompanied with light 
meals or a big bowl of garden fresh salad is the best way to keep heat at bay.

Although the blooming season ended long time back , yet there were some

 beautiful myriad red poppies in the garden till last week that seemed to have
 conquered the unbearable heat of the season .Daddy is quite fond of tiny 
potted succulents so lil one had  potted a gorgeous green one in a tiny red
pot to serve as a fathers day gift. 

Both lil one and father are quite fond of pomegranates so nothing could 
have been better than a sparkling glass of ruby red goodness. Some 
freshly picked basil truly added to the zing. The simple recipe and some 
help from me made the lil one 'Mixologist of the day'....

Pomegranate Basil Mojito
This easy to prepare non alcoholic mojito is perfect to try with your
 lil ones on a hot summer day.
