Apple Mint Ale

This year I went crazy with herbs. One herb that I planted this year is apple mint. I look for some recipe and found this Apple Mint Ale..it's for beverages and this morning I made this for my honey!


After I tasted my concoctions and hubby said "he loves it". I am pretty sure I would make a lot of this every day plus the fact that my apple mint plant is thriving too. Here is the recipe:

1/2 quart Ginger Ale
1/2 cup water
2 lemons
1/4 cup sugar
9  sprigs of fresh Apple Mint

Preparation:

1.) In a glass saucepan ( I use glass), bring the water to a boil and dissolve the sugar over medium-high heat.

2) Once dissolved, remove from heat and add 9 sprigs of apple mint. Place in the refrigerator to chill.

3) Juice the lemons and add the lemon juice to the dissolved sugar mix. Strain all plant debris and lemon seeds.

4) Over crushed ice, fill a glass of 1/2 with the apple mint and top with ginger ale. Garnish with a sprig of apple mint and serve!

                                                         Here is my Apple mint plant.
