- 1 cup water
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup fresh mint leaves
- 1 vanilla bean pod
- Iced coffee

Scrape the insides of the vanilla bean pod into a saucepan with the water, sugar, and mint leaves. Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking constantly until the sugar dissolves. Let cool to room temperature then refrigerate.
Add a couple of tablespoons to your favorite iced coffee with some additional milk or cream and enjoy.
