There is a reason this is called simple syrup.
My parents have this amazing backyard and nestled in a garden area are lemon trees. You can go out anytime and pick a sweet, juicy lemon for whatever you are creating. I had withdrawals for about a week after we got back. Oh no, you mean I have to buy my own lemons now!?
I paired this mint infused simple syrup with a drink I’ll share this week. The real beauty of this is the limitless number of flavors and creations you can make. It is definitely my new favorite budget gourmet way to entertain!
