  • Mint – 2-3 stalks will do. Rinse it well first and then you are ready for use.
  • Fresh Clean Water – I like to use a filtered water, but tap water will do if that is what you have.
  • A Clean Storage Container – I use a glass pitcher in the fridge but you could also use mason jars or any other pitcher you prefer.
