Mint. Lemon. Honey. Water. Yes, it’s that easy!
This is a perfect summer/anytime drink. The mint is refreshing and the lemon adds a slight tang to make it interesting.
Honey (Agave/Coconut Sugar are welcome substitutes)
1. Bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Meanwhile, wash fresh mint in cool water.
2. Once water comes to a boil, add mint and a couple of tablespoons of honey, to your liking.
3. Allow mint to steep in the water until they turn from bright green to a dark shade. Remove leaves.
4. Squeeze a lemon into the water then add cold water and ice to dilute the mixture.
I found that making a ‘concentrate’ of the mint-honey-lemon allowed me better control of the flavor…and it chills faster so you can drink it sooner! Yesssyummmm!
