Refreshes like no other

Summer is all about enjoying the perfect weather, lying on the beach, and sipping cocktails. It is not always easy to hydrate without the guilt, especially when you have to buy water on the move. Don’t feel guilty about plastic bottles – buy an Aquabox instead. Still water is sold in 500ml paperboard carton boxes that are 100% recyclable and easy to transport due to their shape. Best of all, a percentage of sales is donated to the Endangered Wildlife Trust. Visit www.aquabox.co.za to purchase online.

South African delicacies 101: Boerewors

In South Africa, a braai (barbecue) is not complete without boerewors, a type of sausage made from minced meat. Boerewors is easy to identify as it generally forms a spiral. When preparing boerewors, do not prick the casing as this dries out the boerewors while it’s cooking. Boerewors can be enjoyed with various side dishes, or placed on a hotdog roll and served with tomato, chilli or onion relish. Photo: Glenn Batterley
