Fresh mint syrup

Iced coffee (makes one)


Fresh mint syrup

  1. In a small saucepan, whisk together the water, sugar, and mint leaves. Set on the stove over medium heat, stirring constantly until sugar has dissolved. Discontinue stirring and bring to a simmer for a full minute. Remove from heat, cover, and let mint leaves steep for about an hour. Strain syrup into a jar, cover, and refrigerate until ready to use. 

To make iced coffee for one:

  1. Add ice to a glass. Combine chilled coffee, milk, mint syrup, and cream in glass and stir until smooth. Top with a fresh sprig of mint and enjoy!


Makes enough mint syrup for 4-5 iced coffees. Feel free to double the syrup recipe!

*Does not include time required to steep and cool simple syrup.
