Homemade Mint Simple Syrup

Mint simple syrup is one of my all-time favorite ingredients!

Homemade mint simple syrup is so easy to make! Just heat sugar, water, and mint leaves until the sugar dissolves, let it cool, then strain the mint leaves out. You’re left with a delicious simple syrup that’ll keep in a jar in the fridge for about a week.

This recipe is easy to scale up or down. I wrote this up for two cups of simple syrup but you can easily do 1 cup of water, 1 cup of sugar, and 1/4 cup of mint leaves.
