My mission, for this week, was to find the most refreshing, soothing and invigorating summer drink.
Naturally, I chose to accept it.
Obviously, I started my investigation with Mr. Cucumber - because no other fruit or vegetable had a better reputation for being cool than a cucumber.
Next up: Ms. Mint. Another famous refresher, often spotted together with Cucumber.
Thirdly: Mr. Melon. This is a distant relative of Cucumber, yet they get along brilliantly due to their common taste characteristics.
Lastly: Mrs. Water - while the others pride themselves of their special skills, Mrs. Water has a lifetime of experience when it comes to hydration.
Together, these quartet will steal the heat away.
Target acquired. Mission not impossible.
