I picked up a 1 oz bag of dried mint today, but I only need 1 teaspoon for the recipe I'll be making. I'd love some suggestions on ways I can use the rest of it. Tried and true recipes would particularly be helpful! Thanks!
Jennifer Colliau, bartender at San Francisco's Heaven's Dog and owner of Small Hand Foods, loves using mint in her drinks, but she warns home bartenders against using wooden muddlers with this delicate herb. Use a spoon instead, lest you end up with a drink that tastes like toothpaste. This tip will come in handy when you're making your next Mojito.
