My mint is getting wildly out of control. My guess is that it's having its last hurrah. Because the forecast says the low for next Thursday is 46. 46 people... why!? I don't want a pumpkin spice latte nor do I want to wear a sweater. Or boots. Because the boots will be permanently attached to my feet from October to May. So I'd rather not. K? K.
In the spirit of summer and my mint, I whipped up these mint gimlets. We sat on the porch and drank them. They are so refreshing and delicious. I made them with a sugar substitute because I'm seriously watching my consumption. I didn't even notice. They're so darn good.
The secret is mint hitting your taste buds in all ways. Mint infused simple syrup, muddled mint, and a sprig for garish. So so good. So so good I drank two. Hence the so being used twice. Now I'm getting ridiculous.
