Ok so I have 3-4 posts kind of in the works, some started, some with pictures, but really none of them seem appropriate for a holiday weekend especially the unofficial opening of BBQ season. You will see in the next couple of weeks what I mean but for today they just aren't right. I tend to make things when they suit me not really in association with the weather, I mean I cooked out when my grill looked like this:
Anyway as the weather warmed up I have made some recipes more suited to cooking inside instead of out, it just seems out of place for Memorial Day weekend. So what do I do? Well drink recipe of course. I don't really have a name for the recipe, once I had a drink I didn't care really if you want to call it something you can or you could just drink one and well you won't care either.
Here it is:
4 Green tea bags
2 big bunches of mint (maybe 15 leaves)
Steep in about a quart and a half of hot water.
Ginger infused simple syrup is 1/2 cup Sugar 1/2 cup water and about an inch cube of ginger cut up.. here is the process.
The rest is simple in a pint glass put in a handful of ice cubes, then add
1/4 cup dark rum
2 TBLS ginger simple syrupTop off with the cold green tea, add a slice of lime and a sprig of mint for a garnish, sit back and enjoy.
