Thirsty Thursday: Pineapple Mint Punch
Need an aromatic and refreshing beverage to kick-start your weekend? This week's Thirsty Thursday feature is sure to hit the spot!
For delicious sunshine-in-a-glass, simply follow the recipe below:
2 Cups Pineapple Juice
1 Cup Simple Syrup
2 Cups Tonic Water
1 Cup Rum (white or dark)
5-6 Sprigs of Fresh Mint
1-2 Limes - sliced
Combine the first four ingredients in a pitcher and chill until ready to serve. Pour over ice, add mint leaves and lime slices for garnish. YUM! (Or, for an equally delicious non-alcoholic drink, just skip the rum!)
My husband had some Brazilian Bossa Nova music playing in the background as I prepped this treat. Imagine: sun light streaming in the windows and the enticing blend of samba and jazz streaming out! Ahhhhh, perfection!
