Heaven, Again

Mint. Lime. What else do you need to know?

 

 

Start by making a mint simple syrup.

1 CUP SUGAR

1 CUP WATER

HANDFUL WASHED AND CHOPPED MINT

 

Easy right? Now put those in a pot give it a stir and bring it to a boil, then let it simmer for a while. I don’t know how long, it happened while I was eating dinner. 15 minutes atleast I’d say.

 

Then you want to zest some lemons. You’re going to need 3 tbsp zest.

Thats way more than I needed, I just dried it for later use.

 

Then you’re going to juice 4 limes. Put the juice and zest in a food processor so that the zest gets even smaller and the juice is really enriched by the zest. Add in the cooled mint simple syrup.

Then in a glass you’ll put 3 tbsp of the drink mix, and top it off with soda water! About 1/2 to 3/4 c of soda water.

 

So while  this is a cheater mojito, it’s still delicious. Feel free to add an ounce or two of white rum. I woulda if I had it!

 

It’s so refreshing, and the syrup keeps in the fridge for weeks because of the high sugar content.

 

I couldn’t tell you exactly, but I’d say this would make atleast a dozen drinks!
