Home Made Coffee Syrup
A few weeks ago I did a post about Cold Brew Iced Coffee.  For those who don't know, Cold Brew Iced Coffee is coffee made without heat.  It's DELICIOUS!  


Cold Brew Coffee
While cold brew is naturally sweeter than heat brewed coffee, sometimes I want a little extra sweetness.  

Sugar does not mix well
Adding sugar to iced drinks is frustrating.  All of the sweetness sinks to the bottom of the glass.  The solution: is coffee syrup.  Whether it's flavored or plain, the syrup mixes easily and evenly!



Simple Syrup
SIMPLY SYRUP
Simply syrup is plain sugar syrup that mixes easily into cold drinks.   

Recipe:
1 cup water
1 cup sugar

Combine all ingredients in a pan.  Heat over medium heat until sugar melts.  Remove from heat.  Allow to cool.







SALTED CARAMEL COFFEE SYRUP

1 cup dark brown sugar
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla

Combine brown sugar, water and salt in a pan.  Heat over medium flame until the sugar is completely melted.  Stir.  Remove from heat, stir in vanilla.

Cool.

This syrup will thicken slightly as it cools.

Easy right!?

PRO TIP:
If you don't have brown sugar on hand you can make your own.  Combine 1 cup of white sugar with 1 Tablespoon of molasses.

SUPER PRO TIP:
For extra dark sugar add a little molasses.
