      RECIPE TITLE "Apple Mint Julep Recipe"
    Source: © Cooking Light magazine,
    courtesy of Cooking.com

    yields 8 servings time---difficultyeasy

    In Greek mythology, Persephone was so jealous of Hades' falling in love with a nymph named Minthe that the goddess turned her into a lowly plant. Hades was able to soften the spell so that the more
    Minthe was trod upon, the sweeter she smelled. This fragrant herb is rumored to cure hiccups and soothe sea serpent stings. In this recipe, the fresh mint flavor is infused into the apple juice through
    a cheesecloth. You can also make it into a granita by freezing the juice mixture.

      RECIPE INGREDIENTS

    2 cups chopped fresh mint
    8 cups apple juice
    1/2 cup fresh lime juice
    Additional mint sprigs (optional)

      RECIPE METHOD

    Place chopped mint on a double layer of cheesecloth. Gather edges of cheesecloth together, and tie securely.

    Place cheesecloth bag and apple juice in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Remove from heat; cover and let cool. Pour into a large pitcher; cover and chill. Discard cheesecloth bag, and stir in lime juice.

    Pour apple juice mixture over ice cubes. Garnish with additional mint sprigs, if desired.

    NOTE: To make Apple Julep Granita, pour apple juice mixture into a 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Cover and freeze until firm. Remove mixture from freezer; scrape entire mixture with the tines of a fork until fluffy. For an extra-special beverage, make apple julep ice cubes. Pour some of the apple julep mixture into ice cube trays, place a mint sprig in each and freeze. Serve with apple julep mixture or with sparkling water.
