For starters, mint is a great appetizer and palate cleanser. I want to prime their taste buds, getting them ready for some wonderful, delicious, nutritious foods. It also promotes digestion and can help sooth stomachs in cases of indigestion when people tend to overeat as they snack and mingle. And you think I serve this just to quench a person’s thirst. hehe
Limes have a bright and citrus scent which causes your mouth to water, which activates digestion (the digestive saliva floods your mouth even before you taste it).
Every time I make it I am constantly approached by my guests, asking for the recipe. I usually 5x the recipe due to its popularity.
Not to long ago I was hosting a party at my house when my girlfriends son approached me. He had a pad of paper in one hand and a pencil in the other hand. He tugged on the sleeve of my shirt to grab my attention and said, “Amie Sue can you please give me the recipe of that drink over there?” as he pointed at the Lime Cooler. “Why of course, let me know when your ready.”
He positioned himself and with a serious look in his eye he said, “Ready!” I slowly called out each ingredient making sure that I was giving him enough time to write it all down. When I was done he looked at the paper and slowly read back to me what I had shared with him. I assured him he had everything he needed to know.
He carefully folded the piece of paper and tucked it into his jeans. Before turning away from me he said, “Amie Sue, this is going to be a money maker!” haha He was only 9 yrs old. But I have to agree with his sweet innocence, it is a money maker because everyone just loves it.
