Minty Mint Simple Syrup & Very Berry Blueberry Simple Syrup
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup mint leaves
- 1/2 cup blue berries, crushed
- Bring 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water to a boil. Stir to ensure that all the sugar has melted. Remove from the heat and add 1 cup of mint leaves. I also like to add the stems, since they too have so many flavors. Let steep for another 10 minutes before straining, then just leave to cool. When cooled, pour in a glass bottle and keep refrigerated. This makes 1 cup of minty simple syrup.
