Mint in a Cocktail? Smack It First!

 

 

Just throwing a sprig into your drink doesn’t do anything — you’ve got to smack it first!

Tossing a sprig of mint into your cocktail, or water jug,  won’t add flavor, so that’s where your hands come in.

Place the leaves or sprig in one hand and gently smack it with the other.

This warms up the mint slightly and starts to extract the oils before you use it to garnish your drink.

Ahhh, refreshing!
