Orange Infused Simple Syrup Recipe
What on earth is simple syrup? Essentially, simple syrup is a liquid sweetener primarily made from dissolved sugar (or another sweetener) in water. Simple syrups can be used to sweeten and balance either full proof or non-alcoholic cocktails.
Non-alcoholic cocktails use Ritual liquor replacements to mimic the flavor of beloved spirits but without the intoxicating effects of alcohol. Ritual is crafted of natural botanicals to deliver the experience of the original, without the unwanted side effects.
People have added simple syrups to cocktails, coffees, and other beverages to enhance their flavors for hundreds of years. Simple syrup offers a blank canvas to explore the endless possibilities of creative infusions. Check out this unique way to make your own simple syrup at home!
Much like a classic old fashioned (or new fashioned!) this simple syrup reminds us how far a little orange flavoring can go.
½ cup water
¼ cup freshly squeezed orange juice
¼ cup granulated sugar
Combine the water, sugar and orange juice in a small saucepan and heat over moderate heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Once the sugar has completely dissolved and the syrup is clear, take the pan off the heat and pour the syrup in a mug to cool to room temperature. Let the syrup cool to room temperature before placing it in the fridge until use. The syrup will keep, tightly sealed in the fridge, for at least 2 weeks.
