“We all came out to Montereax,
On the Lake Geneva shoreline”
-Deep Purple (Song : Smoke On The Water)
One of the most memorable riffs ever! I remembered when I was growing up, it seemed like EVERYBODY loved Deep Purple and especially that signature song of theirs. I didn’t like them then, because I was sort of a rebel. I didn’t, and still don’t, like music that was played to death by everybody. It just put me off completely. And when the dust settled, I slowly liked their music and began to appreciate how good they were.
Heatwave in Singapore! The weather has been hot hot hot. And in a bid to get the kids, and myself, to drink more water, I scoured online for ways to jazz up the plain old tap juice.
The search had been quite err… fruitful (pardon the pun). I found recipes to add flavor to water, just by adding fruits and herbs.
Basically, most fruits will do. Berries, citruses, melons. And herbs like rosemary, mint and even basil.
So simple to make. Fruits and herbs (if using) at the bottom of a mason jar. Crush them a little with a bartender’s muddler. I didn’t have one so I used a thin wooden rolling pin (anything goes in my kitchen). Topped with ice and water. Let stand for at least an hour. Longer for maximum fruitiness. And then, SLURP!
