    I am with diannehocut. Real hot on the water here in the south. I'm making this in a few so I can sit on the front of my boat and watch the sun go down. Great post. 5 forks

    It's a hot day in the south and I had all the ingredients to make this refreshing drink...even the fresh mint leaves. Will serve it for my bridge group next week. Thanks for the recipe, Sandy.

    Made this same type of thing yesterday except I used club soda instead of cold water to give it a little fizz. Great post!
