    A Southern tradition! Emeril's version takes some time so start it a few weeks ahead of time. Cook time is the setting time.

      Sooo minty and refreshing! No way I could wait a month, but I did manage a week. Not sure if it can get any better with more time. Will have to make a new batch to find out.

      The scent throughout the house is minty fresh! I just made this today and I will be posting a photo and a revised 5-star review when it's completely ready to serve! Very simple recipe! I used fresh mint out of my own garden. Oooh-la-la! I can't wait to simple this Southern sipper!!
