My Secret Ingredient to Delicious At-Home Coffee: Brown Sugar Simple Syrup | Polk County Moms

I love Fall drinks but it gets expensive quickly. You can get the same great taste at home for very little money and in a few minutes. Brown Sugar Simple Syrup is my secret ingredient to delicious at-home coffee. The Brown Sugar Syrup has hints of caramel and gives a rich flavor to coffee. It’s a complete game changer and only takes about 5 minutes

1 cup brown sugar
1 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  1. In a saucepan add water and brown sugar. Cook over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Stir occasionally. ***It only takes about 2 minutes for the sugar to dissolve. Avoid using boiling water to dissolve the sugar.
  2. Remove syrup heat.
  3. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. You can do more- I like a strong flavor so I use 1 tablespoon.
  4. Cover syrup and allow to cool for about an hour.
  5. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 month in the fridge.

*** This is a 1-to-1 ratio syrup. You can change it to 2 cups water for every 1 cup sugar. That will give you a longer shelf life of 6 months. Store in the fridge!

I use this to make Iced Brown Sugar Oat Milk Coffee and Brown Sugar Pumpkin Spiced Latte. I’ll share those recipes this week.
