  • Hi Alison,

    Just wondering about the quantities of mint? It doesn’t appear in the ingredients list, but is in the method. This sounds delicious and I am keen to try it out for a Christmas in July event.


    • Whoops! Bonus points for being the first person to notice! The amount of mint is 2tbsps, chopped. I will update the recipe now. Cheers and Best Wishes for your Christmas in July event, Alison
