When summer begins to roll in one of my favorite and most refreshing drinks is mint water. It's very simple. A gallon of water, a bundle of mint and ice are all you need to prepare it.
Bruise the mint leaves with the back of a spoon.
Put the mint in a gallon of fresh, cool water and chill in the refrigerator overnight.
I like to use spearmint. I find peppermint to be a little too strong.
Serve it strained, over ice.
This will keep in the refrigerator for about one week.
Time to prepare: 10 minutes.
This recipe is vegetarian.
