Personal Notes:
This southern staple was used to sweeten iced tea and mint juleps but it can be used in just about any cocktail or highball made with rum, gin, or vodka.

Fill a 12 ounce glass with ice, add 4 ounces of fresh tea and 2 ounces of mint syrup and stir well.The syrup can be made weeks in advance and stored in a clean, covered container in the refrigerator.
