Green Soda

It's Friday already! The week is finally over after 5 days of hard work and Friday evening calls for some crisps, a drink and a movie. I was a little bored of the same Ginger Beer almost every Friday. I rummaged my fridge and found a box with the left out mint leaves. I knew just the thing to do with those Mint leaves.

I should also mention some of the health benefits of Mint and here it is. Mint helps in digestion, depression and fatigue. Grab a glass of Mint juice to get relieved from headache and nausea. There are a lot more benefits with which I can fill this whole page, but I will stop it at this.

Green Soda is a low calorie drink with health benefits and a very good replacement for Carbonated chemical drinks. Mint flavor with lemon and a hint of ginger is strong & fresh and a perfect flavored drink for a quiet evening. You will never feel like putting down the glass of this Green soda until you have finished it. Happy Friday :)
