  • 1 cup granulated sugar

Preparation

  • Rinse the mint well and drain. Put the sugar in a small saucepan and toss the mint on top. Crush the mint into the sugar with a wooden spoon to release its flavor. Add 1 cup water. Bring to simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently until the sugar is dissolved. As soon as the syrup starts simmering rapidly, remove it from the heat and set aside to infuse for 20 minutes. Strain, discarding the mint, and let cool to room temperature. Store in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
