Mint julep recipe from the chef+mom at Edible Times

Mint Simple Syrup


Flavoring simple syrups AKA sugar+water+brief boil, is a great way to add flavor to not cocktails, teas and desserts. 



2 or 3 sprigs of mint
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup water


  1. Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.
  2. Turn off the heat and add the mint, and let steep for an hour or so.
  3. Remove the mint and store the syrup chilled for a couple of weeks. 


Flavor ideas! Switch out mint for any citrus peel, a few smashed cubes of fresh ginger or even whole spices like cinnamon sticks and whole star anise.
