Your New Summertime Obsession | The Long Cool Lime Mojito Mocktail

Long-Cool-Lime-mocktail

Cheers to this icy cold Lime Mojito Mocktail. Mwah!

When the heat is on the last thing you want to deal with is pesky hot flushes right?!

Although they’re one of the most common signs and symptoms of perimenopause, menopause (and sometimes post-menopause) hot flushes are an unwelcome guest.

There are a multitude of ways to try and minimise them such as taking our Merry Peri® or Perky Post® and keeping well-hydrated by drinking a long, cool, alcohol-free glass of deliciousness.

In fact, when we shared our easy-peasy Lime Mojito Mocktail recipe with our private Facebook group they liked it so much we thought we’d share it here too.

Tip of the day

Unfortunately wine, Champagne and cocktails don’t do our symptoms any favours. In fact, they can magnify them! And we simply can’t metabolise alcohol of any kind the way we once did. 🤭

This mocktail is delicious and will keep your hormones happy too.

Lime Mojito Mocktail

(The single ingredients are for a glass, use more for a jug)

Ingredients:

  • A bunch of fresh mint leaves
  • 1-3 limes for juicing
  • 1-4 lime wedges
  • Sparkling water
  • Ice
You could always substitute lemons for limes – no rules! 🍹
 
What to do:
  1. Add the mint leaves to the glass/jug and muddle (a muddle stick lightly mashes the mint leaves to extract the flavours)
  2. Follow with the lime wedges
  3. Pour in juice
  4. Throw in some ice
  5. Top with sparkling water
🍹
 
If you’re feeling adventurous you could add a salty rim to your glass.

Bonus tip

Post-menopause


This is the time when menstruation is well and truly over, the ovaries have stopped producing high levels of sex hormones and for many ladies, perimenopause symptoms subside.

Estrogen has protective qualities and the diminished levels mean organs such as your brain, heart and bones become more vulnerable. It’s also a key lubricant so your lips may become drier, your joints less supple and your vagina might be drier. In addition, your thyroid, digestion, insulin, cortisol and weight may alter.

At this juncture, a woman might experience an increase in the signs of reduced estrogen but she should have a decrease of perimenopause symptoms. That said, some women will experience symptoms like hot flushes for years or even the rest of their lives.

Perimenopause

Peri = ‘near’

Most females begin to experience the symptoms of perimenopause in their mid-forties. Your progesterone levels decline from your mid-30s but it’s generally from around 40 that the rest of your sex hormones begin to follow suit. 

Perimenopause is a different experience for every woman and some women may barely notice it. The first indicators are usually changes to the monthly cycle. This means that for some ladies, this can be accompanied by things like sore breasts, mood swings, weight gain around the belly, and fatigue as time goes on.

For those with symptoms it can be a challenging time physically, mentally and emotionally.

Importantly, perimenopause lasts – on average – four to 10 years. The transition is usually a gradual process and many women enter perimenopause without realising.
