Mint Simple Syrup


1 c. water
1 c. sugar
5-7 Mint leaves

In a small saucepan, heat the water, sugar and mint leaves on high heat, stirring occasionally until the mixture starts to boil. Reduce the heat to low and let simmer for a few minutes, still stirring occasionally. Pour into a bowl, and let cool. Refrigerate overnight. Remove the mint leaves (unless you aren't using it all at once and want to keep the strong mint flavor in the remaining syrup!) before using.

This recipes works great for using in coffee drinks or alcoholic beverages! It is a very natural mint taste, unlike using mint extract that is more of an overwhelming fake mint flavor.

(Makes about 10 servings, 2 WW points per serving.)
