Mint Simple Syrup

Serves 2



  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves to taste (about a handful)
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract


  • Combine water, sugar, mint, and vanilla in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir continuously until sugar dissolves and the syrup comes to a boil.
  • Continue stirring for another two minutes, then remove from heat. You can either strain out the leaves or leave them to continue infusing the syrup.
  • Let cool completely (refrigerate), then pour about 2 tablespoons per 8 ounces of iced Seattle's Best Breakfast Blend coffee (to taste). Garnish with an extra sprig!
