Over the past several summers, gardening has become one of my favorite hobbies. So far this year, we have an insane amount of peppermint and more strawberries than we know what to do with. I have been enjoying experimenting in the kitchen with our garden bounty. One of my favorite combinations is Strawberry, Lime and Mint Infused Water. Yum! The perfect thirst quencher for those hot summer days.
To make this tasty beverage, you will need 2 lime slices, 3 strawberries thinly sliced, 3 peppermint leaves, 2-3 large ice cubes, and water.
First, toss the fruit, leaves, and ice into a glass or mason jar. Add more or use less of the ingredients depending on what you like! If your desire is a more intense flavor, crush the mint leaves before adding them or push the strawberries against the side of your container when you stir.
Next, pour the water (sparkling or still) into the glass and let sit for at least 10 minutes before consuming. The longer you let it sit the more flavor your drink will possess.
Finally, sit back, relax and enjoy!
