Summer showed up in full force in Dallas this week. We had temps in mid-90s, but it feels like 102. It would be a great week to try out our Just Peachy Popsicles that we shared with you last week.
During the hot summer months we are always looking for a cool refreshing drink that does not require a lot of fuss and extra prep. Who wants to be mixing a drink when you really want your feet dangling in the pool? The Mint Highball is an easy summer drink to fix for one or many. In less than 5 minutes you can be sipping minty freshness while cooling off near the water.
If you like a good Mojito, the Mint Highball will quickly become one of your summer favs. This refreshing beverage is made with Topo-Chico Carbonated Mineral Water and Branca Menta Liqueur. It tastes similar to a Mojito without all all of the sugar and extra calories. The typical Mojito runs around 250 calories, but the Mint Highball hits a low bar with 135.
