Mint Limeade & Mint Syrup 【薄荷柠檬水& 薄荷糖浆】

I have a mint plant in my backyard that has been with us for years, it survived a few winters and always managed to come back to flourish. I normally used the leaves to make Pudina chutney or garnish to dishes.

This year I started using fresh mint leaves to make mint syrup to be used in different drinks and desserts. It is so good that I made so many batches in the span of few weeks! My mint plant can hardly keep up with my demand!




1 cup Organic sugar
2-3 cups of mint leaves
1.5 cups of water

1 tbsp of lime juice
Some ice cubes
Drinking water

1杯 有机糖
2-3 杯 的 薄荷叶
1.5 杯 饮用水

1 大勺的 青柠汁

1. Place water, sugar, and mint leaves in a small saucepan, bring to a boil and turn the heat to medium low to simmer for 20 minutes. Let cool.

2. Pour syrup through a mesh strainer into a glass bottle, discard the mint leaves. Store in refrigerator.

3. To make Mint limeade, add 1 tbsp of mint syrup in a long glass, add ice, 1-2 tsp of lime juice and some drinking water. Stir well and serve immediately.

1. 把饮用水、糖和薄荷叶摆到一口小锅里,煮滚后转中火熬制20分钟左右。冷却。

2. 把薄荷糖浆过滤装到瓶子里,薄荷叶丢弃不用。

3. 做薄荷柠檬水时,在杯里先倒入1大匙的薄荷糖浆,加冰块、柠檬汁和饮用水。搅拌匀即可饮用。
