Description

Use this berry-mint simple syrup infusion as a mixer with club soda for the ultimate refreshing summer drink.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups White Granulated Sugar
  • 2 cups Water
  • 2 cups Mixed Berries (blueberries, Blackberries, Strawberries, Or Raspberries Suggested)
  • 2 sprigs Fresh Mint

Preparation

In a 2 quart sauce pot with a cover, stir together sugar and water. Bring to a low boil over medium heat until sugar has dissolved. (The pot cover will be used later.)

Put the berries in a bowl. Mash berries somewhat, just enough to break them open. Add the mashed berries and fresh mint sprigs to the sugar/water mixture. Stir briefly and return to mixture to a low boil. Cook for 1 minute. Turn off heat and cover pot. Allow mixture to steep for several hours at room temperature.

Remove berries and mint sprigs. Strain syrup through a mesh sieve into a glass bottle or other suitable container. Cover and refrigerate for up to two weeks.

To use syrup:
For each serving, mix 3-4 tablespoons syrup to 1 cup of club soda.
