Sister's Mint Cup

How to make Sister's Mint Cup Recipe - This is a specialty of one of the Shaker sisters. A dash of salt sprinkled on the mint leaves draws out the flavor.

Makes 8 servings

2 cups fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
Dash of salt
2 cups sugar
2 cups water
2 quarts ginger ale or Gingerade, below
Mint sprigs

Rinse mint leaves. Place in a large pottery bowl. Sprinkle with a dash of salt. In a medium-sized saucepan, bring sugar and water to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 3 minutes.

Pour boiling syrup over mint leaves. Let stand until cool; strain. Refrigerate. Add ginger ale or Gingerade before serving. Serve very cold garnished with mint sprigs.

Fresh mint, an herb that grows with abandon throughout most of the country, has been used in such drinks as the classic Mint Julep of the South, as well as in mint-flavored teas.
