Diabolo menthe - refreshing summer drink

For peppermint lovers: We make diabolo menthe (you get in almost any bar in France) - a refreshing summer drink - as follows:


  • 1.5 L soda water (we prepare the water in the bubbler)
  • Peppermint syrup (the best is from the French supermarket, probably has tidy flavor enhancers in it, Riemerschmidt bar syrup is synonymous, or you do it yourself)
  • Fresh lemon or lime juice of 1-2 lemons
  • ice cubes

Gives a wonderfully green color, tastes very refreshing!
