Pairing Metromint Mint Water

Each of the mint waters is a refreshing drink by itself. But you can actually pair Metromint Water flavors with different foods.

  • The Mint Flavors. Peppermint and Spearmint have intense mint flavor. They’re best on their own.
  • The Fruit Flavors. Lemonmint and Orangemint have very subtle flavors and can be enjoyed with almost any food, from a sandwich to a steak. Think of these two as the glass of water to which you’ve added a squeeze of lemon and a fresh mint sprig. Cherrymint has a pronounced cherry flavor and would go well with almost any dessert.
  • Chocolatemint. Chocolatemint goes with anything chocolate and with non-chocolate cakes and desserts that would be copasetic with a slight hint of mint. The marvelous aroma and the chocolate flavor—with a sweetness despite the absence of sweetening—is a treat anytime.

If palate pleasure via more water and fewer calories are on your agenda, Metromint may be your mother lode.

Metromint Recipes

Mint water is more than a refreshing drink: It’s an ingredient!

  • Metromint Hot Chocolate: Boil Metromint Peppermint, Spearmint or Chocolatemint instead of plain water when preparing instant hot chocolate.
  • Metromint Ice Cubes: Freeze any Metromint flavor and use the cubes in beverages from iced tea to cranberry juice to mojitos and gin and tonic.
  • Metromint Julep: In a short glass, stir 3 tablespoons of Metromint Peppermint or Spearmint with 1 tablespoons of sugar until the sugar dissolves. Add 3 ounces of bourbon and pour over ice.
  • Metromint Lemonade: In a large pitcher, combine the juice of 4 lemons, 1/4 cup of granulated sugar and 2-1/2 cups of Metromint Peppermint, Spearmint or Lemonmint. Stir briskly to dissolve the sugar. Pour over ice and add lemon slices.
  • Metromint Mojito: Dissolve 1 tablespoon of sugar and the juice of 1 lime in a tall glass. Add 1-1/2 ounces of white rum and 1/2 cup of Metromint Peppermint or Spearmint. Pour over ice.
  • Metromint Moroccan Tea: Bring 2 cups of Metromint Peppermint or Spearmint to a boil. Pour into a mug over 2 teaspoons of Darjeeling tea (or 2 tea bags) and 2 teaspoons of sugar. Steep for 3 minutes. Makes two servings.

 

The Health Benefits Of Mint

Mint is an herb with wonderful naturopathic qualities. To achieve maximum effect, we recommend Peppermint or Spearmint, with the higher “chill factor,” rather than the milder Chocolatemint (although we’d never underestimate the placebo effect of chocolate).

  • Mint calms the nerves and helps to fight stress. Studies show it combats tension and eases tired, aching muscles.
  • Mint is a good digestíf. It increases the flow of digestive juices to help digest meals and helps to settle the stomach.
  • Mint is an decongestant. The natural menthol in mint (and Metromint) can reduce inflammation in the nasal passages and clear congestion related to colds and allergies.
  • Mint is a breath freshener. It kills bacteria in the mouth. (Now you know why mouthwash is mint-flavored.)

According to Metromint, in Eastern philosophy, scattering mint around the house is a time-honored way to bring peace after an argument. So even if you don’t like to drink mint, see if scattering mint around the house will quell your domestic arguments. At least, it will be an ice-breaker!
