Ginger-Mint Simple Syrup

15 May

THE SAUCE:

You’ll need:

  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 bunch of mint leaves, minced
  • 1 inch of ginger, minced

Directions:

  1. First, take your mint and lay it out to mince.
  2. Then place in a heavy pot with minced ginger
  3. Then, add water and sugar and simmer. Remove from heat once sugar is completely dissolved.
  4. Then, carefully pour mixture over a sieve into a bowl.
  5. Press down on the mint leaves to removed all the simple syrup
  6. Pour your syrup right into a bottle. I used a old happy bear honey jar.

  7. Now you’ll have all the yummy ginger-mint simple syrup you need! Toss it in your fruit salads, add it to a vinaigrette, sweeten your tea with it or use it to make delicious lemonade!
