DIRECTIONS

  • Carefully wash the mint leaves removing any bruised leaves or stems.
  • Place sugar, water and mint leaves in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Lower the heat and continue to simmer 15 minutes, occasionally scraping down sides to make certain all sugar crystals are incorporated.
  • Add the tequila and continue to simmer an additional 5 minutes.
  • Turn off heat and add the juice of one lime. Let syrup cool to room temperature.
  • Strain out the mint and refrigerate the syrup until ready to toss with your fruit salad.
