This was so yummy. I used my own fresh mint. The fruit juice, tea and mint flavor combinations made for a cool, refreshing taste sensation. Sure helped us keep cool in the heat. Thanks Nurse Di.
Served this at our 4th cook-out. Oh so refreshing and cool. Really helped us beat the heat. The mint/citrus flavor was to die for. I doubled the recipe. Great summer refresher. Thanks NurseDi.
I am going to try this again before I rate it. I think the reason no one liked it was because I didn't follow the directions as written. I used limeade instead of lemonade and way more mint than the recipe calls for. The color of the drink was also off. I think the color was because of the green and orange of the juices. I also froze a little mint in ice cubes. When the ice melted, the mint "bloomed" in the glass. This freaked people out. 6/9/10 I tried this again. I used Bigelow Mint Medley Herb Tea instead of fresh mint but everything else was according to recipe. It was too sweet and the color was still not to my liking.
