Toast With This!: Clementine-Mint Sparkler

I love clementines, as well as the refreshment that mint always brings to the table.  This recipe for Clementine-Mint Sparkler brings the two together in a festive, delicious way that's worthy of any celebration.  Enjoy!

Clementine-Mint Sparkler

Serves 2 
Ice cubes
12 mint leaves, finely shredded, plus
2 whole leaves for garnish
1/4 cup (2 fl oz/60ml) fresh lemon juice
1 cup (8 fl oz/250 ml) fresh clementine juice
1 bottle (24 fl oz/750 ml) sparkling water
Clementine tops or slices for garnish

Fill 2 highball or other tall glasses with ice.  Divide the shredded mint between the glasses.  Pour half of the lemon juice and half of the clementine juice into each glass.  Top with sparkling water and stir well.  Garnish each glass with a clementine top and a whole mint leaf and serve at once.
