Instructions
Mint, Ginger & Lime Syrup
  1. Combine water, sugar, ginger and lime zest in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir to ensure all of the sugar has dissolved and remove from heat. Add the mint leaves, cover and steep for 10 minutes. Strain and set aside to cool to room temperature. Transfer to an air-tight container (a pint sized canning jar works great) and store in the refrigerator.
Mint, Ginger & Lime Green Tea
  1. Brew a cup of green tea according to the manufacturers directions and set aside to cool to room temperature. Add a couple of ice cubes to a 12 ounce cup and add the green tea, syrup and lime juice. Stir to combine and enjoy.
Recipe Notes
  1. I have tried this with lemon juice as well, and while I prefer lime juice, lemon was still great.
  2. This recipe was inspired by a restaurant I visited in Nashville over 2 year ago...but I can't for the life of me remember the name of it! So thanks, random Nashville restaurant.
