Mint Water: The Simplest + Most Refreshing Drink of Summer

By , July 30, 2011

I’m in love with mint water. It’s the very easiest thing to whip up, with the most cooling and refreshing taste I can think of.

All you need is fresh mint — out your back door, down at the far corner of the yard where you planted it once and now there’s enough to make mint water for everyone in your state. Pick a long sprig or two of it.

Whack ’em against your hand to dislodge any little crawlies. Rinse them off too, if you like.

Pour a glass of water, add ice, crush the mint sprigs in your fist, and submerge them into the water.

When the water gets low, top it up. If you have nice strong mint, it’ll last you through many glasses.

I love this stuff!

    Lovely isn’t it. I take a few sprigs of mint and rosemary to work with me and put a sprig it in a mug and top it up with hot water. Rosemary is said to aid concentration, so this is particularly useful!!

    Trish, I love that idea of rosemary tea! I love fresh mint tea too…what a difference from dried mint isn’t it!

    Love,
