Crush Mint to Release the Most Flavor

Want to enjoy fresh mint with your iced tea or lemonade? Get the most flavor out of the fresh herb with this simple trick.

To get the most flavor from fresh mint, bruise the leaves. Place the sprigs in a plastic bag and smash them with a meat mallet. This releases their oils—perfect for lemonade and iced or hot tea.
