Thanks for the inspiration, Martha! However, I highly recommend a few changes... drop the brown sugar completely. The drink is already so sweet without it. And add some lime and a splash of club soda. And don't skimp on the mint! Much more flavor and not gonna make you sick with sugar after half a glass. So yummy!
