We used to buy this Starbuck’s brand of syrup…that is until we discovered a recipe for making your own, and it’s so easy. My husband has a very particular pallet and can taste nuances that I cannot detect at all. He says there’s no taste difference in this concoction and the one you would buy at Starbucks. I believe him. Do you know how much cheapter this version is to make? It’s a simple 1-1-1 ratio. Here’s the recipe:
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
We always double this to fill our pump container 2/3 of the way up.
You boil the water and add the sugar, stirring until dissolved. Then you remove from heat (very important), and add the vanilla (I do a heaping tsp).
