EASY Mint-Ginger syrup

Posted by Bee & John on May 2, 2012 at 5:35 PM

I saw this recently on a website and thought to myself.... "self, you need to try this"

After all, I love mint and ginger beer - it's bound to be a hit... and it was!!

The recipe is EASY peasy.


  • 4 long sprigs of mint from your garden (or a commercial bunch) - leaves only
  • 10g of fresh ginger - cut in 4
  • 200g of sugar
  • 250g of water
  • juice of a lemon (optional)

FIRST - chuck the ginger and mint in and chop on 6 for 5 seconds
THEN - put sugar and water in and cook on 100oc for 10 minutes on speed 1
FINALLY - strain and put into a clean, sterilized jar or bottle.  Makes about 350g

I mixed a little bit of the syrup into some cold soda water and took a sip.  I was expecting it to hit me with a rich/sweet flavour but it is very subtle but very flavoursom.  I know that seems like an oxymoron (2 cancelling out statements) but you'll have to try it to find out :-)

What to do with it now??
  • mix with soda water for a mild flavour
  • mix with lemonade for a richer flavour
  • mix with rum or even a little wine for an alcohol kick
  • pour over ice cream for a special flavour treat

Will keep for a couple of weeks in the fridge
