Pear Brandy Mojito Slush

Summer has arrived here in the Northeast and with it we are finally able to enjoy hot sunny days and garden fresh herbs (soon, we’ll be harvesting veggies too!). On a recent hot day, I was delighted to see that the mint in my herb garden was already flourishing and I was eager to start enjoying it. After doing some searches for drink recipes that would incorporate some of our Pear Brandy, I found several Brandy Slush recipes, but nothing that would help me with my desire to use mint from my garden. So, that meant I would have to get a bit creative. So, using the formula for brandy slush, I combined some of the ingredientsĀ of Brandy Slush with ingredients from Mint Mojitos. The outcome, was nothing less than delightful. Naturally, I just had to share this with the world! So, here it is, the recipe for Pear Brandy Mojito Slush.
