Ellerton’s Summer Quencher
July 8, 2011 • Food & Cooking
When I was in Kandy, Sri Lanka, recently I had probably one of my best fruit drinks ever. We stayed at the Ellerton and the staff there served us a brightly colored fruit drink that would quench any summers thirst. I don’t really know what it is called but I call it Ellerton’s Summer Quencher.
The ingredients as I found out after making a visit to the kitchen and having a chat with the staff are papaya, pineapple, lime, ice and sugar. So, here is how you make it.
Scoop out half a medium size papaya (minus the seeds) into a blender. Then cut up half a medium size pineapple. Put that into a blender as well. Now you can add juice from half a lime or a full lime and about 2 tablespoons of sugar (the sugar I have is not very sweet strangely enough). You’ll have to determine the quantity of lime and sugar by taste at the end. Then about 6 cubes of ice. Now blend this all up, pour it into a clear glass and enjoy!
