Yesterday the sun was finally shining! It was Sunday afternoon and there would be no better time to take a good magazine and cool drink out onto the porch for a quiet moment. So, that’s what I did. And the little dogs, Gwen and Sean, joined me. The perfect afternoon.
The moment called for something fresh and different. Not the usual spring water. And, I’d already had my share of caffeine for the day. So, here’s what I came up with. And, it hit the spot.
Strawberry Mint Limeade
5 or 6 strawberries
Sprig of mint
2 teaspoons simple syrup (more or less to taste)
Ice and spring water
Place the strawberries and mint in a tall glass. Squeeze in the lime. Muddle until the strawberries are crushed and juices have been released. Pour in the simple syrup and water (so the glass is about three quarters full). Add ice, stir, and enjoy.
