There is no combination more refreshing than mint and lime. This is the perfect drink to really show off the powerful aroma and flavors of Happy Boy mint. A no-muss, no-fuss tribute to the herb itself enjoyed in a delicately sugar rimmed glass. Call up a few friends, fry up some padrons and enjoy the best flavors of summer.
