summer beverage

With the mint in our garden being thigh-high and rather autocratic,

I was so excited to try this super simple (and so delicious) mint-infused water.

First, grab a pitcher and squeeze half a lemon into it. Then, wash 5 or so stems of mint and rough the leaves up a bit. Toss the stems in the pitcher, and pour water over. Chill.

Voila. It's tasty and refreshing, and it de-jungles your garden lickety split.

Big thanks to Gatesy for the recommendation!

Looks so refreshing -- I'm giving this a try with all my out of control mint!
