If you are looking for refreshing summer drinks, give these a try.
Cold Mint ‘Tea”
Fill a heat proof-jar with fresh mint sprigs, loosely packed. Pour on boiling water to cover. Place in the refrigerator for several hours, until very cold. (Remove the mint after 24 hours.) Pour the cold mint into a glass, adding a few ice cubes if desired. For added flavor and a hint of sweetness, put some diced fresh peaches or nectarines into each glass.
Fresh Melon Juice
Dice cantaloupe, honeydew or watermelon, remove seeds/pits, and puree in blender. Add a slice of fresh lemon or lime and thin with ice, if desired.
