In a small pan, bring the water to a boil.
Remove the water from heat and add the mint leaves.
Stir briefly, then cover the pan and allow to cool to room temperature.
Strain the mix into a measuring cup, pressing the leaves in the strainer to extract as much water as possible.
Add enough water to equal 1 cup of mint water.
Cover and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled
Minty Raspberry Licuado
If your fruit is fresh: Peel the peach then slice it and freeze it in a single layer on parchment.
Freeze the raspberries in a single layer on parchment as well (this can be done while you're making and chilling the mint water)
Combine all ingredients in a blender, starting with 2 Tbsp honey and 1 cup milk. Pulse several times, then blend for 10 seconds.
Taste for sweetness and add more honey if needed.
Add a bit more milk if needed to thin.
Blend 5 to 10 more seconds, until smooth and no chunks of fruit remain.
Serve immediately, with a sprig of mint and/or a raspberry as a garnish, if desired.
