I am blessed with an abundance of mint....growing like weeds in the perrenial bed, among the river stones beneath my deck, and now migrating to an area that I am allowing to become semi unmowed thanks to spreading ground covers.

A couple weeks a ago some friends introduced me to the refreshing drink of "mint water" which is simply a handful of leaves (or a stem with many leaves attached) of mint dropped into a pitcher of ice water, or a couple of leaves in a single glass.

Having always had a weakness for mint juleps, I tried that very simple technique with bourbon on the rocks.

Then I tried it with Tequilla on the!

And now tonight....with clear rum (Ron Rico brand) on the rocks.   If I weren't morally opposed to using "OMG" I'd say "OMG"

That is so smooth and so cool that it could do some very serious damage.

And will.  The night is young.
