Apple Mint Schorle

Sunday was the warmest day of the year so far!  So in celebration, I pulled out the balcony furniture and juiced up this Apple Mint Schorle to enjoy while I take in some sun!  Apple Schorle’s are a very popular beverage in Germany that can order in any bar or restaurant.  With a few extra green ingredient, this Schorle is perfect balcony cocktail with it’s fresh pressed apple juice, lime tanginess and fresh mint!  My tongue was dancing…and so was I with my dog in the sun!

And of course I didn’t forget St. Patrick’s day is this Thursday!  So celebrate the holiday with this gorgeous green potion!

Apple Mint Schorle

  • 8 green Granny Smith Apples
  • 4 large stalks of Celery
  • 1/2 Lime, with peel cut off
  • 1/4 c or 1/2 oz fresh Mint leaves
  • 1 liter of Sparkling Water, chilled

Chop and juice the apples, celery and lime.  Add to a blender and blend with the mint leaves for 20 seconds on low or just until the mint leaves are in tiny mm pieces.  Pour into a sealable 1 liter size juice container so that you are able to shake the juice before pouring as it separates.

To serve, in a tall glass pour half of the Apple Mint juice (always shake before) and half sparkling water.  Add 3-4 ice cubes and top with a straw or cocktail spoon as this will separate and you want to be able to stir it throughout your enjoyment!

Makes 2 liters of Apple Mint Schorle (1 liter of Apple Mint juice + 1 liter of sparkling water)

  3. WOW! This sounds TRULY incredible!! SO refreshing and healthy! The celery here is crazy bitter, so I might (sadly) have to wait until my next visit to the States. But you never know, I might find some good celery here! 🙂
