Here’s my nonalcoholic version of Mint Julep, ‘cuz, why not?
handful of fresh mint leaves
1 tsp pure spearmint extract or oil of spearmint
3 limes, peeled
sweetener of your choice to taste
1 cup water
Pour 1/2 cup of water into container and add spearmint extract or oil and pulse for a few seconds.
Place the handful mint leaves in your hand and give them a good smack (seriously) to release the oils but not damage them.
add mint leaves and remaining ingredients to the container and blend until you can just see traces of the mint leaves.
Serve over ice.
