3 cups water
6 sprigs well-rinsed fresh mint (each about 6 inches)
1/3 cup sugar or to taste OR 1/4 cup honey
2 cups fresh orange juice
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
Fresh mint for garnish
Slice of orange or lemon for garnish
In a medium saucepan, bring 3 cups water to a boil. Add mint, cover, remove from heat and steep 15 minutes or longer. Remove mint. Add and stir until dissolved 1/3 cup sugar (or honey). This concentrate may be cooled and frozen if you like.
Combine orange and lemon juices in a 2-quart pitcher. Add mint concentrate and enough water and ice to fill the pitcher to the top. Chill completely and serve with garnishes.
(a little vodka wouldn't hurt either)
