3 Refreshing Drinks
With Mint from the Garden
If you have garden mint - it's probably going wild this Summer
Mint is one of the easiest herbs to grow in your garden - if you grow it, you probably have a lot of it, here's 3 ideas on refreshing drinks to enjoy.
1 oz tequila (I use an organic silver tequila)
Juice of 1 Grapefruit
1 Mint leaf pummeled for extra flavor
Splash of Triple Sec
Heavy Sprigs of Mint for garnish
- Muddle 2 lime wedges, 5-6 Mint leaves and 2 Strawberries together
- Add in Ice
- 1 tsp agave
- 1/2 cup each: club soda + Rose wine
- Stir and Enjoy!
- Pummel 1 cut up lime + Mint leaves (I use about 4-5)
- Add ice over the top
- Pour club soda (or my favorite Topo Chico) over it to the top of the glass and enjoy!
