If you love the flavor of Lime and Mint then this Lime-Mint BBQ Sauce Recipe will freshen up your next day of grilling!  If you are really big into the mint, here’s a great recipe for a mint flavored margarita to go with this dish as a drink.  It’s a great combination for a hot summer day while grilling on the deck.  The mint adds a nice freshness to the sauce as well as to margaritas.  This recipe is not as much of a traditional barbecue sauce as it is a grilling or marinade sauce but I couldn’t resist adding it as Limes are my favorite of the citrus fruits to use in cooking.
