Cool Minted Milk

Prep: 5 minutes; Cook: 3 minutes; other: 50 minutes

Italians enjoy summertime while sipping this cool, refreshing beverage that's typically served in the afternoon. They make this drink with a mint-flavored syrup found in their grocery stores and markets. The mint-infused simple syrup that we've created for this beverage also tastes delicious in lemonade, tea, and hot chocolate.
