• MYO Flavored Syrups

    Breadmaker flour/yeast-summerdrinks1.jpgMaking your own flavored syrups for drinks, cocktails, slushies and dessert toppings is easy & inexpensive!

    Base Ingredients:
    2-1/2 cups sugar or splenda or nutrasweet
    1-1/4 cups water

    Flavoring Choice: Choose 1:

    • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
    • 1-2 tbsp. orange blossom water
    • Rosewater
    • 5 drops Any kind Flavoring Oils: peppermint, spearmint, orange, lemon, crème de menthe, vanilla, anise and chocolate flavors (Flavoring oils can often be found in the baking aisle near the cake frostings)


    In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar and water together, stirring often until the sugar is completely dissolved. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until it thickens to the same consistency as maple syrup. Remove from heat and add the flavorings of your choice.

    The flavor possibilities are nearly endless! Once the syrup has cooled, pour it into a bottle, cap and store in the refrigerator for up to 30 days.

    To use them, simply mix the flavored syrup with water to the desired sweetness. We like ours with just 1 Tbs or so per glass and then add fresh sliced fruit or berries.

      A set of these would make a great gift. Three bottles of syrup and a can of coffee would be easily equal in value to a $50 gift certificate to Starbucks.

      Can vanilla extract be used instead of vanilla oil? If so, about how much would be needed.

      Going to have to try this. Looks like it would be great. Question can you use kool-aide to flavor it? Has anyone tried this? Let me know. Thanks.

      I have made mint syrup for iced tea before with fresh mint and dried mint. Both are equally tasty, though the syrup from dried mint is greener than the fresh. I also can it to use during the year ans I do drink iced tea all year now that I gave up sodas.
