Introducing Spade & Spatula’s Video Series: A Mint Tasting and Refreshing Herbaceous Drinks

Today’s an exciting day for us at SS HQ. We’re unleashing our first videos on you. Evidently, the training wheels haven’t come off the video camera yet, but we’re secretly just a little bit pleased with the two short clips we put together celebrating the wonders of mint. The first video features a short tasting where we  talk you through the flavors, aromas and uses of 5 delicious varieties of homegrown mint. The second video is a step-by-step guide to making not one, but two tasty mint-infused drinks. Our take on the classic Mint Julep, and a Minty Watermelon Lemonade both use a tangy pineapple mint simple syrup as their base.

Stayed tuned for more, and let us know what you think!
