DotMCC-Challenge #6 - More Herbes, Less Salt Day

Hello everyone!
Welcome to our 6th DotMCC challenge ....and thank you so much for all the fabulous yellow piggies you shared with us during the previous challenge! 💗

Our new challenge theme is:

More Herbs, Less Salt Day. 
Always celebrated on August 29th

Eating less salt is good for everyone, regardless of age or general health. 
Salt can easily be reduced by giving our food more flavour with fresh herbs!
This time of year is perfect for fresh basil, parsley, mint, oregano and cilantro, but you can also use fresh rosemary, sage, dill, chives etc to give our food a healthy taste! 

So, put down the salt shaker and try to add fresh, healthy herbs to your meals. You’ll find you won’t miss the salt and enjoy the flavor of your dishes even more!

It is still very hot and as a little refreshment, 
I prepared a delicious and refreshing Mojito with lime for you - of course without alcohol!

I used Distress Oxide ink to stamp the limes and felt-tip pens for watercolouring. A few splashes here and there, a piece of Washi tape on the left and the card was almost ready!
The straws are hand-drawn and the sentiment I found on the internet was traced onto the finished card by using carbon paper and then drawn with black fineliner.  

I hope you have some time to join in, because....

There is ALWAYS a reason to celebrate! 😉

Ingredients: (for 1 glass)
5 to 7 cl apple juice
6 to 7 fresh mint leaves
½ Lime
Mineral water or lemonade
1 to 2 teaspoons brown sugar (cane sugar)

Cut the lime into 6 slices and put them directly into the glass.
Add 2 teaspoons of brown sugar.
Using a pestle, crush the lemon so that the juice mixes with the sugar.
Add 6 or 7 fresh mint leaves and crush carefully.
Add apple juice and fill the glass with crushed ice (to the top) and fill up with mineral water or lemonade.
Decorate with lime slices and mint leaves and .....enjoy!
