Serves 4


    • 3 to 6 large sprigs of fresh mint
    • 2 cups (500ml) white grape juice
    • juice of 1 lemon
    • juice of 1 grapefruit
    • 1 cup (250ml) grated fresh pineapple
    • pinch of salt
    • 2 cups (500ml) ginger ale


Place the mint in the bottom of a pitcher. Gently crush with a wooden spoon, until you can smell the fresh perfume of the mint. Add the grape juice, lemon juice and the grapefruit juice. Stir until well blended, then cover and refrigerate. Also refrigerate the grated fresh pineapple in a covered bowl, as well as the ginger ale.

When ready to serve, place 4 or 5 cubes of ice in some tall glasses. Divide the pineapple equally into each glass, then do the same with the refrigerated juice. Fill each glass with ginger ale. Add some sugar if you like the drink sweeter.
