I came about these not just tasty but pretty cubes when I was making mojitos. I went overboard squeezing limes and had 1 1/2 cups of juice left over so I tossed in lime and mint and walla! If you skip the sugar it will be very tangy the way I enjoy it.
Do use these in lemonade, juice, punch, ice teas, cocktails of choice.........
This is a refreshing Cuban drink. It's hard to stop drinking these on a hot summers day. I made these for the fourth of July and we went on to 3 yes 3 pitchers! If you don't have a muddle stick try a mortar and pestle or the end of a wooden rolling pin. Please use fresh lime if you cannot go ahead and try the already bottled lime juice but if you do think about that when you rate this recipe! I did both and there's nothing like fresh! Same goes for the fresh mint if you need to you can use frozen but I DON'T recommend extract. And for the sugar real granular is what helps muddles the lemon and extract the mint oils from the leaves.
It's just to yummy! Great this time of the year. You can pakage all the spices in a pretty bag or glass jar enclosed with directions. And give away!
The picture displays not only the tea but the spices that make it.
If your not drinking Thai beer, Thai iced tea is the way to go. It is a native-grown red-leafed tea which is spiced with star anise seed. It is usually brewed strong and then blended with a rich swirl of evaporated milk. Delicious
Refreshing drink! This can be used as a sour mix for mixed cocktails, just omit the last step of water.Add to a punch.Make a lemon-limeade by mixing half lemon and half limes.Pack it into a thermos for a picnic.
Honey used before a workout increases the physical stamina & energy level of the human body since honey is easily absorbed in the blood. Honey used after a work out removes tiredness and fatigue almost instantly. Honey is primarily fructose and glucose so it is quickly absorbed by the digestive system. (Do like the Ancient Greek athletes who took honey for stamina before competing and as a reviver after competition.)
