I saw this a long time ago in a hippie cookbook, but it used sugar. Once I brought it to a party where everyone was heavy drinkers and to my shock, everyone drank this before they touched the alcohol! Need I saw more? It is refreshing and will make you just a bit giddy!
Put this into a transparent pitcher, it looks so pretty and will impress your friends with minimum effort!
2 lemons, juiced
½ cup mint leaves, torn or crushed a bit
1½ cup strawberries, sliced
1½ cup agave, maple syrup. or sweetner of your choice
water, to fill the rest of pitcher
1 cup seedless red or black grapes, pop each one slightly with your fingers
Take each grape and pop it with your fingers, just a bit to release the juice. Drop into picture. Tear or slightly crush mint leaves and add to pitcher. Drop sliced strawberries into pitcher. Add sweetener. Juice lemons using a fork and then slice lemon rind and add to pitcher. Using a long-handled spoon, stir fruit and sweetener and let the flavors get acquainted with one another. Fill the rest of pitcher with water and ice. Add more sweetener if needed. Get ready to sigh!!
