Refreshing Mint and Lemon Ice

This is the perfect summertime dessert or snack. Make this easy simple syrup and freeze. Easy pleasy! Keep the alcohol seperate so it freezes faster. I used a bowl but it works better on a sheet pan with high sides.

Mint and Lemon Ice

2 cups water
1/2 cup sugar
1 bunch mint sprigs
2 TBSP lemon juice

Dissolve the sugar in the water and bring bring to just below a boil. (You have made a simple syrup!)
Remove from the heat and add a handful of mint leaves. Steep the mint leaves in the water for 10 minutes. Add the lemon juice.  Cool and add to a bowl or a pan with high sides. Once ice crystals start to form, stir every 30 minutes until you get a slush. Serve with your favorite adult beverage or eat by itself. Garnish with a sprig of mint.
