i can’t get enough apricots! ::::
Shhh! Quiet! No talking necessary. One: the baby is sleeping and I’m sleep deprived. Two: when you talk, you can’t drink. This is your summer refreshment. No thinking or talking needed.

If you want to use the apricot compote for this recipe, the link is here.
- 2 sprigs of fresh mint
- sprinkle of sugar
- ⅓ cup fresh apricot puree or apricot nectar
- ¼ cup simple syrup (I like my fruit tart, so you may need to adjust this to your liking)*
- 2 drops rosewater
- seltzer to fill a 16 ounce (~480 ml = 2 cup) glass
- Muddle one sprig of mint with sprinkle of sugar in 10 ounce glass. Don't overmuddle as mint will impart a bitter flavor.
- Add apricot puree, simple syrup, rosewater, and ice. Fill with seltzer and stir. Top with small mint sprig.
- Remember the apricot compote I made? If you puree this more or strain it, you have the perfect apricot puree for this drink. Alternatively, you can use store-bought apricot nectar but may need to adjust the sweetness.
