Theres nothing like a nice, refreshing drink on a hot, sunny afternoon. A lemon ice tea with mint. Mmmm.
For those of you that grow mint, you will know that once it starts to get going, there is so much that you don't even know what to do with it all! Here is a nice way to preserve some of that mint, in a way that you will most definitely use!
So to start, pick your mint, and wash the leaves well. Get your ice tray.
Pull off the leaves, and if they are quite large, give them a quick chop. Then put the leaves into the ice tray.
Fill it up as much as you like! Then fill the trays up with water and put them in the freezer!
Delicious!!!! Add these to amazing Homemade Lemon Ice Tea (recipe coming soon for all you lemon growers!), or even to cocktails, or just to water!
Another great combination is mint and lemon. So add some finely grated lemon zest to the mint before adding the water! AMAZING!!
And if you really wanna go crazy! Chopped strawberries and mint in ice-cubes! Super yummy! So go crazy with your not boring old ice recipes! :D
