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.
Despite what some might tell you, a Mint Julep is not a Mojito made with bourbon. It’s also definitely not a Mojito made with bourbon, sour mix, Rose’s lime juice and Sprite. Like most great cocktails, the Mint Julep is painfully easy to make - and just as easy to screw up. Hopefully this recipe will steer you in the right direction.
For these Rice Krispy Treats, we mixed in kettle-cooked potato chips for added crunch and a salty kick, upped the decadence with chocolate-covered peanuts, and added another level of sweetness with toasty graham crackers.
