Cool and Refreshing!
The heat is amazing these last few days and calls for something cool and refreshing!
I hosted a ladies brunch this morning and served this refreshing Citrus-y Mint Tea. I am told my husband's Grandmother served this tea quite a bit and it became her signature drink, so I thought I would give it a try.
I had fun with the photo shoot as you can see ☺ but it really is too warm to work outside if there is nothing very pressing to do out there so I had plenty of time to play around with it. The blue hydrangeas and the calla lilies are favorites of mine too and were gifted to me a few years ago.
2 cups fresh mint leaves, packed
3 cups cold water
Blend and put through a sieve.
Discard the leaves then add:
2 cups sugar
2 (12 oz.each) frozen lemonade concentrate
2 (6 oz.each) frozen orange juice concentrate
Add enough water and ice to make 2 gallon.
This would make really good slushies or Popsicles. Yum!!
Hope you're having a wonderful Thursday!
