This delicious drink is a great way to use fresh mint and celebrate summer. If your pineapple isn't overly ripe, add a bit more sugar. Save any leftover pineapple and mint syrup in an airtight glass container, or freeze the mixture in ice cube trays to use later. —Colleen Delawder, Herndon, Virginia
