I bought a cute little mint plant a few months back and it’s turned into a monster!! What’s a gal to do when she’s stuck with a bumper crop of mint leaves?
Make Fresh Mint Mojitos, naturally!
I thought I could give the Mojitos an extra minty jolt by letting the sugar hang out with the fresh mint leaves for a couple days! I should add that I am not a huge sugar person…. I considered using an alternative, but was unsure about how it would turn out with anything else.
Start by pouring a small bit of sugar into a mason jar.
Add a few mint leaves and repeat until you have your desired amount.
Easy, right? Doesn’t anything look pretty in a mason jar?
I’ll be whipping up Mojitos after the sugar and leaves get to know each other for a few days… I’m not sold on any particular recipe yet, so feel free to shout out some suggestions!
