Start water on to boil –
I use Herbal Sweet & Spicy Tea bags
(one per cup of H2O)
take some sprigs of mint and strip the leaves from the stalk.
about 1/2 cup pack per every 4 cups
In a container large enough to put all the water
add the mint leaves & enough boiling water to cover
and muddle (bruise with a hard object)
put in your Herbal tea bags and add remaining water
let steep – when coolish add juice of 1 citrus fruit
Lemon, lime or even tangerine per each 4 cups or
per taste and stir. Then strain into a bottle for storage.
Once cool enough put in the fridge.
When you want a cool mint sweet tea fizz
(caffeine and booze free) add about 5 oz
of your newly minted mix (PUN)
to a tall glass of ice and one can of
Diet Ginger Ale – garnish with small sprig of mint
and sip thru a straw on the
You can kick it up by using Ginger Beer instead of
diet ginger ale and you can add Whiskey or Bourbon
to make it a true adult beverage.
