Total Time12 hrs 45 mins
Servings: 3 cups

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • ½ ounce fresh mint
  • zest of 2 limes
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons silver rum
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced mint leaves

Instructions

  • Add sugar and water to a medium saucepan. Heat over medium-high heat until the sugar dissolves. Add the ½ ounce of mint to the saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, cover, and let sit for 10 minutes.
  • Once the 10 minutes have passed, remove the mint leaves with a slotted spoon. Place mixture into medium bowl. Add fresh lime juice, silver rum, and brown sugar. Stir together. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours.
  • After the mixture has chilled, add lime zest and thinly sliced mint leaves. Freeze in ice cream machine according to manufacturer instructions. Note: because of the rum and all the sugar, the mixture will take a while to freeze. Mine took almost 25 minutes.
  • Transfer frozen mixture to storage container and freeze until firm, about 8 hours.
