Mint Limeade / Myntelimonade

A limonade recipe found on food52.com
Mint Limeade / Myntelimonade

Tart and refreshing, this limeade is a perfect drink for getting into the spirit of spring. The mint syrup is intensely flavored, so you don’t need much, it makes for an invigorating (and highly quaffable) drink. If you’ve got a sweet tooth, just add a little more of the mint syrup. Simple and lovely in its pure form, this recipe would make a great jumping off point for all sorts of riffs. If you’re so inclined, try adding a splash of vodka, or even light rum.

Mint Frosted Brownies / Brownies med Peppermynteglasur

Mint is I guess something one either love or hate. I have friends who can’t stand it, but for my part I love it in any form. Nothing beat a good book and a steaming cup of mint tea in the evening particulary when combined with a few thin After Eight mint wafers. A couple of these brownies would do nicely too – Ted
