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.
1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
8 cups 1% low-fat milk
How to Make It
Bring first 3 ingredients to a boil in a medium saucepan, stirring to dissolve sugar. Reduce heat; simmer 1 minute. Remove from heat; cover and cool completely.
Press mixture through a fine sieve over a bowl, reserving mint syrup; discard mint leaves.
Combine mint syrup and milk; stir well. Serve immediately.
Note: If you prefer to serve this beverage by the glass rather than by the pitcher, stir 4 teaspoons mint syrup into 1 cup milk.
