Mint infused simple syrup - ice tea perfect

I make cold brewed unsweetened ice tea pretty much everyday. It refreshing and a nice alternative to juices. I usually add some mint and lemon and enjoy. My husband likes it slightly sweetened. So with that I decided I should just make a mint infused simple syrup to store in the fridge and add to the ice tea. This is so simple and if you have a mint plant, it's a perfect way to use some up!

Step one :get as much mint as you want. I want mine super minty so I added ALOT!

Step 2: add 2 cups sugar and 2 cups water

Step 3: bring to a boil, stir to make sure all the sugar is dissolved. Take off from the heat and let it sit for 45 mins or when u remember!
Step 4: strain and enjoy. I use about 2tbs for each big pitcher


  1. Nice idea! We have a ton of chocolate mint and peppermint growing in the garden (pretty much the only think quail and rabbits don't eat).

  2. ooo chocolate mint??? That sounds soooo good. this one is an orange mint....but the orange really isnt there
