pineapple mint simple syrup

Last year we planted a bit of Pineapple Mint in our garden and had lots of fun trying it out in various drinks.

This year, it came back, and came back strong. We have so much pineapple mint! So if you’re interested in some let me know. 🙂

I was trying to think of different ways that I could use it and besides the usual iced tea – I wanted to attempt something new. That is when I came up with the idea to make a simple syrup out of it, which I have never done before.

It was so easy, and adds lots of flavor to, well, whatever you want it to.
