Frankly it didn't taste too different from plain old strawberries with ice cream. I'd suggest using even more mint and instead of chopping it tear it finely so that all that wonderful mint oil doesn't go to waste on your cutting board! Also consider cooking the strawberries and mint in the syrup for a while both to release their flavors and to give the syrup some character of its own. All in all though it's a good recipe with potential to be much better. Read More
