This is one of my favorite cocktails to make at home. It is a refreshing cocktail that is great for summer, and it is so simple to make.
I have to admit that these cocktails, especially the fresh-squeezed version, are a bit of a pain to make. I usually make them with a cocktail shaker, which adds a whole lot of time. I also always have to keep a couple of ice cubes handy, because if the ice melts, it can be an issue.
To get the best out of this cocktail, I prefer to chill a fresh bottle of sparkling water, pour it in a chilled glass, and then fill two shot glasses with chilled tequila, simple syrup, and lime juice.
The other thing I can’t do is ice my cocktails. To make fresh ice cubes, I just have to drink a lot of water, so I have to keep a couple of ice cubes handy.
All the other things that go into my drink are not like the one above, though. I usually make a bottle of ice cube and a glass of water. But it’s important to remember that it’s best to stick to one thing, however you want to drink it.
For instance, if you want to make a fresh pitcher of water with your fresh mint tea, you’ll want to make an ice cube, and then fill the pitcher with water. If you want to make a frozen drink, you’ll want to make ice cubes, then fill the pitcher with a frozen drink.
This is a good tip for the ice cube method. A pitcher of ice cube water with fresh mint tea already tastes good, but the pitcher has no added flavor, and it’s better to add something to the pitcher you want. If you add a little sugar, you might not want to drink the same pitcher of ice cubes again because the fresh mint tastes bitter. If you want to add more flavor, youll need to use the mint tea which should already taste good.
I love this idea. I think it is a beautiful way to combine a refreshing drink with an ice cube tray you already have. Adding a few mint leaves to an ice cube makes it taste even better.
I can see how this might work. Imagine you have a pitcher full of ice cubes and the pitcher is already filled with mint. When you fill an ice cube tray and add the mint, you get a minty minty minty flavor. That’s cool.
If you want to add more flavor, youll need to add more mint. I mean the mint might just taste better. I just have a little mint tea which I’ve used on my recipes for centuries to make me feel good.
