Mint Cooler is a refreshing drink to combat the heat on hot summer days!
This drink was created for the now defunct Blog Hop Wednesday, hosted by Tickling Palates, where I was paired with Surabhi. Joining a blog hop was a fun way to get to know other people in the food blogging world for more inspiration.
In fact, I now host a similar event. If you are a food blogger interested in joining us, please join our group here. Mint is one of my favorite herbs. I put it in lots of savory dishes as well as sweet, as in my Broiled Mango Parfait. I also use it when I make fresh lemonade and iced tea. It is so refreshing. When I saw this refreshing drink on her blog, I knew this is the recipe I was going to do. This reminds me of the Mint Iced Tea I get whenever I visit Yemen Cafe or the Moustache. Cool and refreshing…perfect for the summer season.
Mixed with liquor, I think this would make a fabulous cocktail also…maybe with some Ouzo? Leave a comment and let me know what creative cocktail you create using this cooler!
- 1 large bunch mint about 2 cups of firmly packed leaves
- 3 cups cold water
- Juice of 2 limes
- 1/4 cup sugar
- Combine the mint and water in a food processor and blend well.
- Leave to sit for 1 hour so the mint can really infuse the water.
