This crisp, tart, and clean drink is incredibly delicious and easy to make.
2 cups sugar
2 cups water
5-6 mint stems
Combine sugar and water in a heavy-bottom saucepan.
Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and heat for about 5 minutes to dissolve sugar.
Add Sicilian Lemon Balsamic and mint. Simmer for 2 more minutes.
Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.
Remove mint and store in a jar in the refrigerator.
*To make a glass of sekanjabin:
Put 2 tablespoons of the syrup in a tall glass with ice.
Add cold water to taste.
Garnish with cucumber slices, mint leaves, or lemon slices. Sparkling water adds a super-refreshing twist.
**For a grown-up version, just use less water and add rum or vodka!
**Use this recipe to make many different versions by simply changing the flavor of the vinegar used. We love it with Honey Ginger, Pomegranate Quince, Cranberry Pear, Lemongrass Mint, or Coconut Balsamic Vinegars.
