our herb garden is overflowing with mint right now. they other night we had some friends over and i wanted to make a refreshing little drink. i whipped up this simple mojito inspired spritzer for our guests.
a bunch of mint (leaves only)
-in a food processor, process mint & honey until finely diced
-in a pitcher, mix in sparkling water and honey to taste
-pour thorough cheese cloth or a colander to remove mint pieces
-enjoy over ice
****you can add a light rum if desired
