Iced Lychee and Mint Drink

Oh hai!! My name is Smeagol. I lives with my hoomin across the road from KJ. I wants to be a LOL cat, but is very hard. Too much competitions. So KJ says if I want, I can go on her blog to be on the interwebs. So here I is.

First I says something about meh. Den KJ asks me to introduce recipe for hoomin food.

Name: Smeagol as I says.

Age: Dunno akshually. I's not a kitten and I's not a senior cat. I's somewhere in betweens.

Favourite things: Jumping up onto da roof. Is very high. I hangs my paws over the gutter and watch KJ jumpin and yellin. She so funny. I just laff and laff.

Snoozin' on da neighbours BMW. Is most comfy car in da street. He's always yellin. I dunno why.

Poles. I likes gliding against poles. Is my thing. This one my favourite. Is nice.

Things I no like: Hoomins pattin meh on da head. On left cheek and behind right ear is OK. Else, hands off the kitteh.

Dat big black kitteh that lives down da road. I hate him.

Now for the recipe. Is a drink akshually - Iced Lychee and Mint. I no know what dat is. But is pretty colour - no!!!.

Thank Smeegs. As you can see I am a cat person. I find them intriguing creatures. Take Smeagol here. One day it's all BFF forever and I am showered with love and affection. Next day I am cut dead. She looks at me like I'm some stranger trying to lure her into a car with a bag of sweets. There's no reckoning with that little feline mind.

But there is nothing complicated about this drink. It's a cinch to whip up. Mint is always refreshing. It's fantastic on a long hot day.
