The beauty of having a herbal garden on the terrace is of course to be able to make my favourite summer drink: The à la Menthe. In Brussels you can find it in any café, but it’s really easy to make by yourself:

for one cup you’ll need:
around 10 leaves of mint (peppermint)
1 tsp of sugar or honey
2 dl hot water
Put the leaves in a tea cup, add a teaspoon of sugar and pour the water. Let it rest for a few minutes. Enjoy!!
