I bought a large bunch of mint at the Farmer’s Market this weekend, and wasn’t quite sure what to do with it. I’d love to make it into mojito’s, but until September hard alcohol is off the table… So, I decided to make mint syrup so that I can add it to my water (mmm tasty!) or save it and use it for mojito’s later on. And, it’s your lucky day, cuz I am going to show you how to make it!
What you’ll need:
1 bunch fresh mint (about two cups of leaves)
2 cups white sugar
2 cups water
Then strain out the minty leaves and you’ve got yourself some delicious mint syrup. A note about this step, my strainer wasn’t quite fine enough to get all of the little bits of leaf out, so after I strained it I let it go through a coffee filter just to get all of the little floaty bits out.
