Sugar, spice and everything nice. These are the words that not only describe the Power Puff Girls (thanks Professor Utonium!) but also the simple and easy to make syrup recipes that we have.

We’ve got a syrup for each of the everyday beverages and drinks that we take and a bonus one for pancakes. Cooking is a beautiful and experimental experience which means that you can substitute one of these syrups for one of your ingredients in the kitchen.

Breakfast without a pancake is rare and so on those many days when you’re making pancakes and you just don’t feel like using store-bought maple syrup, you can replace it with your own homemade syrup. The kids can help you make this as you prepare the pancakes they love.

When making your cocktails at home, here’s a suggestion; spend even less by at least making one of the ingredients and that’s the syrup. Yes, once your friends discover your little tricks they might turn your home into their new happy hour spot but who cares, it’s all about having a good time (responsibly so!).
