When it’s as hot as is now, we enjoy drinking cold skim milk with mint syrup. It is refreshing and pleasant to drink, and quenches thirst well. Besides, it is a good source of calcium and robust protein.
We buy mint syrup made from natural mint, without any coloring agents or other chemicals, therefore biologically pure; it includes only mint, water and sugar.
If you cannot find it in your stores, try and make it yourself.
Mint Syrup Recipe
- Crumple up fresh mint (about 0.3 lb). Pour boiling water over it (about 4 glasses). Let it brew.
- Drain, add sugar (1 glass sugar per 1 glass liquid) and boil for about 5 minutes.
You will get a transparent and flavorful syrup. Add it to cold milk to taste and enjoy.
You can also add this syrup to other cocktails, ice cream or any desserts.
