These are perfect when you want something special to cool you down. Just take some big jars and make up some combinations based on what's in your herb garden and what fruit you have.
The other day I made these two and I have been enjoying them so much. Here's what I did.
Gathered some herbs from my garden. I used Lavender Mint for one jar and Strawberry Mint for the other.
Fill your jars with water and before you put the herbs in rinse off in some water and let them sit for a while. Let them wilt a bit. Then take a wooden spoon and kind of lightly smash it into the leaves. it helps them to release the flavor. Add herbs to jar and include any fruit you might want to use. I used a few raspberries and blackberries for the Strawberry Mint and blueberries for the Lavender Mint. The raspberries turned the water a light pink which was pretty.
Mint is of course a perfect herb choice for a hot day, but you can use all kinds of herbs and combinations.
These would all be delicious on their own or in a combo. I'm sure there are more choices. Tell me your favorites and I'll add to the list.
