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.
