Mojito Scones: Happy Hour, Meet Breakfast.

I found this fabulous recipe on KAF: "While at first thought, these two flavors (sour? minty?) don’t seem complementary, they actually occupy enough common ground to make a good pair. Both are refreshing, clean flavors; not at all subtle, they wake up your taste buds. Heck, they’re both bright green; that should count for something! Lime and mint come together nicely in these tender scones. Since the recipe as written provides the barest hint of mint, feel free to ramp it up by brushing the scones with a bit of mint syrup after baking."
