1 Lime-Mint Syrup: Bring Coconut Sugar and water to a boil in a medium saucepan and cook until the sugar is completely dissolved; around a minute. Remove from heat, then stir in the lime zest and mint, and let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes to infuse the syrup with the flavor of lime and mint. Strain out the mint and zest and refrigerate the syrup, covered, until cold.
