I relapsed and bought a cookbook today. Peggy Porschen’s Boutique Baking.

I got out my precious vintage tea cup (Royal Albert, no less!) and made myself a jug of Minteani.


You need fresh peppermint leaves, peppermint (green) tea (1.5dl), freshly squeezed lemon juice (1.5dl), 150g caster sugar (I reduced it to 80g), 50ml vodka, ice cubes & a splash of crème de menthe (I did not have any and left it out).
I used the new “cold water” Twinings peppermint green tea:

Next I heated the lemon juice with the sugar to dissolve it and left it to cool.


Because I like my drinks frozen, I blended the tea, lemon juice and vodka in the blender with some ice cubes.
I poured it in the tea cup with a splash of lemon juice.

I very highly recommend that you try this recipe yourselves. It is delicious with a capital D!
