3 Refreshing Drinks with Mint

3 Refreshing Drinks
for Summer

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.

Grapefruit - Mint Paloma
This is kind of like a more refreshing version of a margarita. It's a fave in my house.
  • 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
Strawberry Rose Mojito
Want to switch up your normal Summer Rose? This is a fun twist.
  • 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!
Virgin Mojito
When I'm avoiding alcohol but want something that feels festive, this is a go-to.
  • 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!
