Mint Cooler

Mint Cooler is a refreshing drink to combat the heat on hot summer days!

Mint Cooler Pitcher

This drink was created for the now defunct Blog Hop Wednesday, hosted by Tickling Palates, where I was paired with Surabhi. Joining a blog hop was a fun way to get to know other people in the food blogging world for more inspiration.

In fact, I now host a similar event. If you are a food blogger interested in joining us, please join our group here. Mint is one of my favorite herbs. I put it in lots of savory dishes as well as sweet, as in my Broiled Mango Parfait.  I also use it when I make fresh lemonade and iced tea.  It is so refreshing.  When I saw this refreshing drink on her blog, I knew this is the recipe I was going to do.  This reminds me of the Mint Iced Tea I get whenever I visit Yemen Cafe or the Moustache.  Cool and refreshing…perfect for the summer season.

Mixed with liquor, I think this would make a fabulous cocktail also…maybe with some Ouzo?  Leave a comment and let me know what creative cocktail you create using this cooler!
