Summer Drink Series: Mint Simple Syrup

Mint Simple Syrup- Happiness Homemade When temperatures get into the hundreds (yes, Baltimore is that hot) even the most refreshing drink can't make me sit outside. Instead, I'm watching a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills marathon and flipping through Bon Appetit. In their June issue, they feature a "Summer Cooking Manifesto" containing 21 laws, with #18 being "simple syrup is liquid gold." This could not be more true, I can’t go without it and always keep a jar of around the house. It can be added to anything -- drinks, sorbet, ice pops -- and it's incredibly easy to make. This summer I started making it with mint, and now it doesn't just add sweetness, it adds a pop of flavor, too!

Simple syrup can be kept for two weeks, so make it now and check back for part three of my summer drink series for great ways to use your new simple syrup!
