Simple Syrups for Cocktail & Mocktails

Simple Syrups for Cocktails & Mocktails

We have mint so I will make up a batch of syrup for drinks throughout summer. Also, try in hot or iced tea in place of sugar.

SYRUP FOR COCKTAILS, MOCKTAILS & TEAS MAKE MINT AND/OR LEMON

1 CUPS OF SUGAR
1 CUP OF WATER
1/2 CUP OF MINT  OR ZEST AND JUICE OF TWO LEMONS

IN A SMALL SAUCEPAN ADD ALL INGREDIENTS AND BRING TO A BOIL OVER A MEDIUM HIGH HEAT, ONCE SUGAR IS DISSOLVED REMOVE FROM HEAT AND LET COOL.

LET STAND FOR AT LEAST 30 MINUTES. THE POTENCY OF THE SYRUP WILL DEPEND ON THE AMOUNT OF TIME IT STEEPS. REMOVE MINT, DISCARD, LEAVE TO COOL.
STORE REFRIGERATED IN AN AIRTIGHT CONTAINER FOR UP TO 2 WEEKS
