Blueberry Mint Simple Syrup

It’s vacation time for me and my family, and this year vacation means that we’re headed to my hometown in Manitoba for some hot weather, relaxation, Gramma/Grampa time, fishing, swimming…and my little sister’s wedding.

You’ve seen the cake.  Now it’s time to share with you the delightful little treats that I created to make the surprise bachelorette I planned extra-special.  (especially because said surprise bachelorette happened yesterday and is no longer a surprise).

I wanted to bring along a few snacks and a fun signature drink for the afternoon of golf I had planned for my sis and a bunch of her girlfriends.  Golf, you say?  I told you my sister was special…

Stay tuned for posts about some of the other things I made (which, by the way, I concocted in my Halifax kitchen and brought with me on the plane all the way to Manitoba…because that’s just the kind of crazy foodie I am), but for now, here’s a recipe for the blueberry mint simple syrup I used to make blueberry mojitos.

Ingredients
  1. 2 cups white sugar
  2. 2 cups water
  3. 1 cup fresh blueberries
  4. 1 large handful mint, torn
Instructions
  1. Throw all the ingredients together in a saucepan and place over medium heat just until the mixture boils. Remove from the heat and cool.
  2. Strain the mixture (a colander lined with cheesecloth would work well here) into mason jars and store in the fridge until ready for use.
  3. To make the blueberry mojito, add about two fingers of simple syrup to a small tumbler, a splash of white rum if you wish, a slice of lime, and a few mint leaves. Muddle, and then top up with sparkling water.
