The Ultimate Guide to Making Homemade Infused Simple Syrup

Are you tired of using the same simple syrup in all your cocktails and desserts? If you’re looking for a unique flavor profile, infused simple syrup is the solution. Making infused simple syrup at home is easier than you may think. 

All you need is sugar, water, and your favorite herbs, fruits, or spices. In this guide, we’ll take a look at everything you need to know about homemade infused simple syrup.

Step 1: Gather your ingredients

First things first, gather all the ingredients you need for this recipe. You’ll need granulated sugar, water, and your choice of flavorings. Whether it’s fruits, herbs, or spices, make sure to get high-quality ingredients for the best results.

Step 2: Prepare your flavorings

Prepare your flavorings by washing and cutting the fruits and herbs or grinding the spices. The flavorings should be chopped in a way that they can be easily strained later. If using herbs, bruise them before adding them to the saucepan to release the oils.

Step 3: Create the sugar syrup

Put equal parts granulated sugar and water in a saucepan and bring it to a boil over medium heat. Make sure to stir the mixture until the sugar is dissolved completely. Once the sugar has dissolved, reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for 5 minutes.

Step 4: Infuse your flavorings

Add your prepared flavorings to the sugar mixture and let them infuse for 10-20 minutes. This will allow the flavors to meld together. Make sure to taste the syrup before removing the flavorings to ensure it’s to your liking.

Step 5: Strain and store your infused syrup

After the flavorings have infused, strain the syrup through a fine-mesh strainer or cheesecloth. Store the infused simple syrup in a clean, airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks.

Making homemade infused simple syrup adds a unique flavor profile to your cocktails and desserts.
