New Drinks for Summer

Fresh Mint Cold Press

fresh-mint-iced-coffee-I-howsweeteats.com-2

To make Fresh Mint Syrup

ingredients:

2 cup water
2 cup sugar
2 big bunches of fresh mint leaves 
2 vanilla bean pods, seeds scraped (or use 2 pumps of Amoretti Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Bean)

*Mint simple syrup; add the water, sugar, mint leaves and vanilla beans (and empty pod) to a saucepan and heat over medium heat. Whisk constantly until the sugar dissolves and the mixture comes to a boil. Let it bubble for a minute or so, then reduce the heat and let it cool completely. Put it in a bowl or jar, let it come to room temperature then stick it in the fridge overnight. In the morning (or before using), strain out the mint leaves and vanilla pod – or simply leave them in to continue flavoring the syrup.

To make Fresh Mint Cold Press

ingredients:

1.5 Oz fresh mint syrup
8 Oz cold press
2 Oz milk, cream or sweetened condensed milk
fresh mint leaves for garnish

Combine in a 12 Oz glass over ice, serve & enjoy!
