Doesn’t the name Mint Chiller sound divine? This is our new summer drink recipe (even when it’s not quite summer).
Don’t worry. The mint simple syrup is no more difficult than boiling a pot of water, and adds wonderful flavor and aroma.
In a small saucepan, combine the sugar with 3 cups of water. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce the heat, and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the mint, remove the pan from the heat, cover, and let the liquid steep for 1 hour. Strain the liquid into a bowl. In a large pitcher, combine the mint syrup, lemon juice, orange juice, and ginger ale. Stir until well blended. Serve over crushed ice.
