Directions

  1. Pour the water into a large glass container with a lid. Stir in honey until dissolved.
  2. Zest the lemon, being careful not to include any white pith, and juice the lemon. Combine the zest and juice with the honey water mixture.
  3. Hold a bunch of mint in one hand; use your other hand to twist and squeeze the leaves, slightly bruising them to release their fragrance and oils. Immerse the bunches in the water mixture. Cover the container and place in direct sunlight for two hours. Remove the mint leaves, shake, and serve over ice in tall glasses, garnished with a mint sprig.

I used a mild basil variety and orange mint mixture. BTW, a "BUNCH" is equal to a cup and a half. I looked it up once when using cilantro, and was glad I did!

Not bad. I'm wanting a bit more taste--either from the lemon or tea. It tastes a bit like flavored water, so I think I'd add a tea bag or two next time. It also isn't that minty, but 2 bunches of mint is a vague measurement. Not sure what the recipe submitter really meant, so I looked it up. A small bunch is about .5 oz (which is what I used), a larger bunch is 1 oz. Perhaps what was meant was a large bunch? At any rate, I made the Mint Ice Cubes on here (recipe by Skuba) and added it to my glass of tea. Although it took them a while to melt, once they did, it is a mint explosion! thanks for the recipe.

followed the recipes, then brewed it in the fridge- (much safer that way) added some extra lemon too, yum!
