  • 2 cups fresh green mint leaves washed and stems removed
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups granulated sugar


Infusion Process:

  • In a saucepan, combine the fresh mint leaves and water.
  • Bring the mixture to a gentle simmer over medium heat, allowing the mint leaves to infuse the water for about 10 minutes.


  • Remove the saucepan from heat and let the mint infusion cool slightly.
  • Strain the mint leaves, pressing them gently to extract the flavor, and discard the leaves.

Simple Syrup:

  • Return the mint-infused water to the saucepan and add granulated sugar.
  • Heat the mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly until the sugar completely dissolves, forming a simple syrup.


  • Allow the mint syrup to cool to room temperature. This ensures that the flavors fuse together.


  • Transfer the cooled mint syrup to a clean, airtight container. Store Teissiere mint syrup in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.


Recipe tips

  • For a more intense mint flavor, let the mint leaves steep longer during the initial infusion.
  • Experiment with the syrup-to-water ratio to find your preferred sweetness level.
  • Add a splash of lemon juice for a hint of citrusy brightness.
