Homemade mint syrup recipe

Summer is coming, and you probably have a mint in the garden. That´s why we have prepared a recipe for homemade mint soft drink and a recipe for homemade mint syrup that you can prepare yourself. Recipes come from our traditional family recipes, but also from Vladimíra Jakoubě´s book "From Grandma's Garden to the Grandfather's Cellar" (original "Z babiččiny zahrádky do dědova sklípku"), whose release we sponsored. If you are interested in the book, it is available at the Kittel Museum.
