Mint Infused Simple Syrup Recipe
Mint simple syrup is easy to make on a stovetop but infusing pre-made simple syrup with the mint results in a lighter, more aromatic syrup. Heating the mint can cause many of the aromatics to be lost so I find the extra step of using the whipping siphon is often worth it. This mint simple syrup adds hints of mint to many drinks and is especially good in mojitos or iced tea.
Mint Infused Simple Syrup Ingredients

1 bunch mint, about 15 sprigs
Mint Infused Simple Syrup Instructions
Put the mint into the whipping siphon and pour the simple syrup over the top. Seal the whipping siphon, charge it, and swirl for 20 to 30 seconds. Let the siphon sit for 1 minute longer. Place a towel over the top of the siphon and vent it. Open the siphon and wait until the bubbling stops.
Strain the simple syrup and let sit for at least 5 minutes before using.
