Lime and Mint Refresher

The second base in our Drinks Week series is Mint syrup, which I use to make a Lime and Mint Refresher.

Mint Syrup
1 cup sugar
1 1/3 cup water
3 sprigs of fresh mint

Combine them in a pot, bring to a boil and simmer for 1 minute. Remove from heat and cover pot. Let steep for 20 minutes. Strain and refrigerate syrup.

Lime and Mint Refresher

1 T lime juice
1 T mint syrup
1 cup water

Mix together and serve over ice and with a slice of lime.

If it happened to be Gin Time, you could add a shot of that to this drink and feel equally well content.
