Ah, the temperamental Mint, It grows wild and out of control, it ignores you and it is stubborn, it takes over quietly and with mint, it’s very hard to win, unless you have some of the same qualities and you are persistent and you say, these are your boundaries my love, no more space for you!! ( Mint Mohito?)
Why is it so determined to grow out of control?
Because it knows how GOOD it is for us and it wants to be available and plentiful!
There are many different varieties of mint such as peppermint, spearmint, chocolate mint, and apple mint, all with similar growing habits. Do you like mint in your cooking! I love mint!!
Mint tea is my favorite and a wild Mint Mohito I love!
But how about infused oil with mint and rosemary for a perfect hail?
So many benefits the amazing mint has for us!
Infuse your oil with mint and have it ready for your favorite salad, or cooking! I love infused oils with different herbs for a variety in my cooking! You can create something so delicious and exotic with simple herbs available and happy to give us pleasure! Here is a recipe that mint is the king! Watermelon salad
How about a Mint Julep? All you need is bourbon, sugar, ice, and a few sprigs of fresh mint. And if you really want to do it right, a frosty pewter cup.
Mint Mohito you said? Of course here is how to make a Mint Mohito with love!
In a smallish Collins glass, muddle lime juice with 1/2 to 1 teaspoon superfine sugar. Add the few mint leaves, mushing them against the side of the glass. Fill glass 2/3 with cracked ice and pour in the rum. Pitch in the squeezed-out lime shell and top off with club soda or seltzer.
AH! This amazing herb is here just to please!
Have fun with a touch of Mint!
