      This was wonderful; kinda like a cosmopolitan. I have fresh mint in my garden but I bet you could use a mint tea bag to make the mint tea. I used cranberries to make the syrup. Very good!

      I made a half batch of this with a slight change, cranberries are hard to get here so I used craisins to make the syrup. I was a little worried about the mint in this as I'm not a mint fan but the flavour of it was very subtle. The drink was very refreshing, a great one for summer by the pool!
