You need to make your own syrup in order to enjoy the coctail world at home. It is easy to make, it is cheap (the sugar syrup, not the vanilla). Here we go:
- one (or two) part sugar
- one part water
Bring the water to a boil. Dissolve the sugar in the boiling water and stir like a boxing champion for a couple of minutes until the sugar is dissolved in the water. Then remove the pan and let everything cool down. Pour the sugar syrup into some kind of bottle and put in the fridge for up to one month.
Now you are ready for hundreds of coctails!
If you step it up, you also make vanilla syrup. Use real Madagascar vanilla. Make it like the sugar syrup except that you enter the sliced vanilla beans and the seeds in the pan. Stir and boil for 10-15 minutes and now you are in heaven. Can you smell the vanilla? I will return with recipes of coctails with vanilla. For now, use it in coffee!
