Famous Mint Iced Coffee


  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup clover honey
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped mint leaves
  • 1 cup iced coffee
  • Heavy cream (optional)


  1. For the mint simple syrup, place the honey and the water in a small pan and place on medium high heat. Continue to stir until honey and water are fully incorporated (right when it begins to come to a boil).
  2. Place chopped, fresh mint leaves in a bowl and pour the hot simple syrup over the mint. Stir to incorporate.
  3. Place a lid or plate over the bowl and let steep for 20-30 minutes. I like a very strong mint flavor so I let it steep for about 40 minutes.
  4. Strain mint leaves out of simple syrup. Reserve mint simple syrup in an airtight container. Will last for up to one month in the refrigerator.
  5. The next part is up to your tastes! I like less sweet so I do not add as much simple syrup but start here and add more if you’d like. In a cup place 2 ounces mint simple syrup and 2 ounces heavy cream (or half and half). Add one cup iced coffee. Stir to combine and add ice! Top with fresh mint leaf (optional).
