Homemade Mint Wine
The other day, I posted our recipe for Homemade Watermelon Wine.. While this is an excellent wine to make - and drink! - in the summertime, I'd be remiss if I didn't share our other big favorite summer wine recipe.
Homemade Mint Wine.
I'm not kidding. It sounds a bit odd, and you'll question the outcome at various stages along the way. Looking at our notes, we actually wrote "Don't bother making again" in the notes! A year after starting the wine, however, we're really glad we made it.
This is a light, sweet, unique wine.. great served chilled. If you have some patience, you'll be glad you stuck it out. This wine ferments lightly and sloooowly.
Other than that, mint is easy to make, and SUPER cheap if you - like a lot of people I know - have a patch of mint that's bent on taking over your yard. Homemade Mint Wine is a great summer project!
If you haven't attempted making wine before, don't be intimidated!
