  1. Crush a few mint leaves in the bottom of an 8-oz. glass, then fill with crushed ice. Add one tablespoon of simple syrup and one tablespoon of water. Add 2 ounces of Early Times. Stir gently until glass frosts. Garnish with a fresh mint sprig, sip and enjoy.
  2. Simple syrup directions: Combine sugar and water. Boil for 5 minutes without stirring. Pour mix over a handful of mint leaves, and gently crush the mint with a spoon. Refrigerate overnight in a closed jar. Remove mint leaves, but continue to refrigerate. Stays fresh for several weeks.

I had some mint-infused simple syrup in the fridge for mojitos, so I thought I'd give this a try. Of course it's strong... Anyone can see that by reading the recipe. Mint juleps are supposed t...

This is the only way to make simple syrup! I didn't have quite enough time to let the syrup and mint sit overnight, but it was still quite tasty!

Wow, I don't know what I was expecting, but these were really strong. The taste of whisky overpowered everything - I couldn't even tell there was mint or simple syrup in it. I'll be sticking w...

I had made simple syrup for another drink recipe so it wasn't infused with mint. However, this was delicious! I used Maker's Mark and the syrup worked wonderfully with the whiskey.

I enjoyed this drink very much! It's meant to be SIPPED ice cold and is refreshing on a very warm day. After mixing let it sit for a couple minutes so it gets icey cold. The minty simple syrup i...
