Making your own flavored syrups for coffee at home is an easy yet tasty way to customize your morning cup. Syrups provide an array of flavor possibilities, from the classic mocha to an exotic dragon fruit. The best part is how simple it is to make these syrups yourself! Making coffee syrups requires only a few ingredients and a few minutes of your time.
The first step is to gather the ingredients. This method calls for the simplest of ingredients: sugar, water and your favorite type of flavoring extract. You need 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water. To customize the flavor of your syrup, add 1 teaspoon of extract of your choice. Extracts have specialized flavors, such as almond, anise, cardamom, bourbon, coconut, mint, or even lavender.
Once you have the three ingredients, it’s time to make the syrup. Begin by combining the sugar and water in a pan on the stove. Heat the mixture, then turn the heat to low and stir occasionally until the sugar is fully dissolved. Take the pan off the heat and add the teaspoon of flavoring extract. Stir to combine, then pour the syrup into an airtight glass container. This mixture will last around six months if stored in the refrigerator.
Making your own syrup for coffee is often preferable, as it reduces costs and allows you to customize the flavor to your taste. You can use different extracts to mix and create unique blends that are sure to wake you up in the morning. Give it a try to find the perfect flavor to add to your morning cup of joe!
