Mint Week!

The plant of the week is mint (we have four kinds in the Victory Garden Store) and temperatures are climbing. So here's a great idea for a cold minty beverage. Anyone have a suggestion for a spiked version?

Mint-Ginger Lemonade:

1/2 c chopped mint

1/3 c chopped fresh ginger

1/3 c honey or agave syrup

2 c boiling water

1 lemon (juiced)

1 1/2 c cold water

Pour boiled water over mint, fresh ginger, and sweetener. Let steep for 20-30 minutes. Strain into a pitcher. Add juice and cold water. Pour over ice and add mint or lemon garnish.
