Peppermint Tummy Tamer


To calm an upset tummy.

1 c. sugar, or equivalent of stevia
1 c. water
3 peppermint tea bags
1/3 c. finely chopped fresh peppermint leaves

Combine the sugar (or stevia) and water in a small saucepan.  Bring to a boil, then remove from the heat.  Add the teabags and mint leaves and steep for five minutes.  Remove the tea bags and let the syrup cool to room temperature; strain to remove the mint leaves.

To serve, mix ½ c. syrup with 1 c. seltzer.  The syrup will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 months.
