Herbert’s hot recipe book: Mate & Mint

Zuzana Fajta • 26. February 2017

Mate & Mint syrup will cool you down and wake you up. One of the most popular syrups on offer tastes not only as a cold drink but also as a hot mixed drink.


Lemonade or a hot drink made from this syrup represents a natural alternative to coffee or synthetic energy drinks. Syrup from a high-quality Mauritius cane sugar is literally packed with fresh mint, Moroccan dried mint and yerba mate. It provides plenty of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that will get your body and mind started whenever you need it.


Preparation of all recipes is very easy and fast. Just create the flavour and enjoy your drink!
All recipes are mixed in the same dilution ratio as cold lemonades (1:10). We recommend using 80°C water for the preparation of hot drinks to avoid getting burned.

Do not hesitate to use fresh herbs, slices of fresh or dried fruit to make the drink according to your possibilities and taste. Finally, put all ingredients into a glass, pour hot water, stir, garnish and the delicacy is ready.
