Oh hey, remember when I went to Copenhagen? Yea, how could you forget… I kinda have talked your guys’ ear off about that magical land.
I could go on for dayssss about my obsession with CPH, but I am sure you guys are well aware/sick of hearing about it, so let’s just talk about one of the biggest highlights…
… the bevvy of game changing bevvies.
First there was the GMO-free Apple Mint soda in a bottle, then the Ginger Rose Lemonade (that I recreated here), & lastly– the fresh mint tea that changed my world.
Minus the occasional dirty Chai, I am typically more of a tea girl. So, when I saw everyone ordering up up these glasses full of steaming mint, my interest was peaked. Being the typical annoying American tourist, I was asking the waiter 500 questions about this concoction- What is it? Where did it come from? What’s in it? Is it good?
Not sure if he even understood me as his response was “It’s good, popular drink in Denmark”, & was already whipping it up for me.
One sip, & it was game over. We went back everyday to get our mint tea fix.
It’s been on my drink making to-do list for a hot minute now, but I was waiting for my mint bush to be in full bloom before whipping it up ( homegrown mint > store bought, trust!!! ). The second it was ripe for picking, I whipped up this little concoction & hosted my own mad hatter style tea party complete w/ all of the girliest fixins’.
Invite over your besties, get some cutesie teacups & channel your inner 6 year old with a tea party situation such as this one. Not only will you introduce them to the best tea they ever had, but it will also make for some fab Instagrams (sorry, not sorry!).
// P.S. have you seen my Copenhagen video? If not, check it out here. The tea makes a special appearance ;) //
» Ingreds: fresh mint (I prefer chocolate mint), Meyer lemons, & rock candy sticks. «
» Just like they do in CPH, use rock candy sticks to sweeten (plus, so cute!) «
» Serve w/ a slice of lemon & some gluten free Ginger Snaps (from Trader Joes!!). «
