Summer Drinks: Perrier Menthe
Qu'est-ce qu'il faut chaud aujord hui alors!
In France, your summer drink of choice could very well be Perrier Menthe, i.e. a sparkling soda flavored with mint syrup.
I love this drink and was very pleased to discover that you can get the Teisseire Sirop Menthe at French Riviera Bakery for $11. Until someone begins importing Spa Red from Belgium, my personal favorite sparkling water is good ol' Canada Dry Club Soda.
And, I've found that you can use Teisseire as a quick short-cut for the simple syrup and mint in your rolling pin mojitos. -- Jay Francis
