There are many different types of mint such as spearmint, peppermint, or apple mint. Any will be fine in these drink recipes!
Mint goes well with the sunshine for a “Sun Tea.” Simply put 4 black or green tea bags in a half gallon glass mason jar with some of your fresh mint and let steep in the sun for several hours. Serve over ice with a touch of honey!
If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, make up a mint mojito. Put 4 mint leaves in a tall glass, squeeze in juice of ½ a lime, add a tsp. of honey then gently mash with a wooden spoon. Add crushed ice. Stir in 2 oz. of white rum and top it off with club soda. Garnish with a sprig of mint.
