How to make it
- Put rinsed mint into pitcher, take leaves off their stems.
- Add lemon zest.
- Add sugar on top of mint and zest.
- Mash for at least one or two minutes really well, bruising the mint.
- Add lemon juice and let stand for 15 minutes.
- This is when you call your GF to come on over for early evening drinks if you already haven't done so.
- Add pineapple juice, ginger ale.
- ***For extra decadence, wet rims of cold glasses with a little of pineapple juice or lemon, then place glass down into small plate with a little sugar so that the rims are covered in sugar.
- Put ice into drinks, add alcohol to desired amount, then add mix into drink.
- Add fresh sprig of lime.
- Makes almost 8 cups, enough for 4 people having two drinks.
