Mint needed for a party
Having an afternoon party on Tuesday this next week
Making this cocktail, or that is I was planing to do so, but can not find mint in the Fort Myers area anywhere
Been to three large grocery stores and no luck
Or maybe come up with another drink
Save yourself the trouble-make caipirinhas, the Brazilian drink instead. Muddle lime with sugar, pour in cachaca, mix with ice in a shaker, pour into a glass. Pitu, the popular Brazilian brand, should be readily available, although other 'premium' cachacas are usually available at any decent liquor store. Limes are easy to find and cheap. And your guests won't be picking mint out of their teeth all evening. Happy Drinking!
Do you have a Whole Foods, Wild Oats or Fresh Market near you? (I am in Naples) Or go to a farmers market this weekend - mine have a lot of latinos that sell fresh mint. Try Sweetbay or Flamingo Island in bonita springs if that is not too far to drive.
