Pure Leaf

The perfect summer sipper and a favorite of Ted Allen. 

Ingredients

  • 6 chunks honeydew melon (about 1-1/2 inches square)
  • 15 large fresh mint leaves
  • 1 bottle Pure Leaf™ Not Too Sweet Honey Green Tea

Directions

Method: Crush honeydew and mint with wooden spoon in 1-quart glass measuring cup. Stir in Pure Leaf™ Not Too Sweet Honey Green Tea. Strain and serve over ice. Garnish, if desired, with additional honeydew and mint sprigs.

For a pitcher, simply double the recipe. For a cocktail version, simply add 1/4 cup vodka.

Mint Shopping Tip

Keep both fresh herbs and dried herbs on hand. Dry herbs will last a long time, while fresh herbs have a short shelf-life.

Mint Cooking Tip

If you want the flavor of herbs in your food without the actual pieces, wrap them in cheese cloth and cook; discard before eating.
