    I notice you mentioned putting the mint in after the syrup has reached a boil. Is that technique the same for all herb syrups?
    I made some mint simple syrup and used it in your Pineapple Mojito recipe. My guests loved it. Perfect for a hot summer evening get-together.
    Thanks.

      For most of the herb simple syrups this is the technique we use as it keeps the oils (that bring all the flavors) from boiling off with the heat. For fruit based simple syrups or some spice syrups we will boil the syrup with those flavor items in it! Cheers!

    That is crazy how easy it is to make. I want to do a little herb garden set up next year.

    Love all your cocktails! They look so elegant and not to mention deeelicious. Amateur question: boiling water and sugar – is that regular simple syrup?

      Thanks so much! Yes, water and sugar together is just simple syrup, which we use a lot of, too!

    I was expecting a more green syrup, considering the whole mint thing, but it makes sense that it’s not. Sounds yummy!

      Thanks, there is just a hint of color, from placing it in the hot water, but really is stays a neutral color and just extracts the flavor! Thank you!

    I have a big patch of fresh mint that’s trying to take over my garden, so I’m constantly on the lookout for new things I can make with mint so that I can try to keep that patch under control. Loving the sound of that Pineapple Mojito that Rachel mentioned in her comment… sounds like my mint patch is getting a trim over the weekend! 🙂
