Today, I want to share with you another cocktail recipe.
Except, it’s not really for a cocktail. It’s for my “go-to” summer drink — lime and mint infused water — which is perfect if you want something refreshing to drink during those hot summer afternoons, perhaps while working.
You know that “vacation” feeling?
That feeling of inner peace and centeredness that you feel when relaxing at a beach club, or perhaps a small Mediterranean café by the sea?
When you close your eyes and feel the gentle ocean breeze brushing over your face, and hear the cry of seagulls and kids playing in the sand?
Well, anytime you want to relive that feeling, make yourself a jug full of this lime and mint infused water. You’ll feel like you’re on vacation again.
What you’ll need:
Ice cubes; mineral (or home-filtered) water; 2 limes; fresh mint.
Here’s how you make it:
(This recipe is fast, easy, and convenient. For best results, I recommend you make it the night before and consume the next day. But you don’t have to.)
- Cut your limes into slices, and throw them into your water pitcher.
- Pick the leaves from your fresh mint, and slice each mint lengthways, along the stem of the leaf. Drop them onto the lime slices.
- Fill your water pitcher with as many ice cubes as you can, then top up with water until it is completely filled. Place in the fridge.
- When you are ready to unwind, play some gentle bossa nova music, pour yourself a glass, close your eyes, and smell the fresh sea air.
For the water pitcher, you don’t get any better than our own Aurora Water Pitcher. Especially when the sun is shining, and it bathes your table in warm and passionate shades of red and gold. And, for drinks like this one, no glass matches the Water Pitcher better than the Aurora Drinking Glass. (Sadly, though, for the time being, we are out of stock of these pieces.)
Enjoy! And, as always, when you make your own lime and mint infused water, make sure you pull out your smartphone, take a picture, and send it to us.
We’d really appreciate it!
(It takes ~20 seconds. You can just reply to this email, attaching the photo, and I’ll make sure to share it with all of the team here.)
