Nothing is more refreshing than adding a sprig of mint to food or drink recipes in the summertime... especially when you add a little lime, basil, and rum!
Mint is a very aromatic herb (which I love the smell of) and it can actually do well to grow at home, just be careful because it's considered invasive so it spreads quickly! If you do grow it at home, you can make these tasty drinks at your convenience and the mint will repel a lot of insects. You can't beat a great drink with added benefits! ;)
