Easy Three-Step Cocktail Syrup Recipe

written by Yummy Team 27th August 2019

Making cocktails at home? Well, you should be. We’ve shared several cocktail recipes for you to make on your own and the one ingredient that seems to pop up is syrup. You can buy syrup for your recipe but there’s still a way for you to spend less and still have a good drink (and a good time!): make the syrup at home.

Syrup adds a unique and sweet flavour to whatever drink you’re enjoying because you’ll just be using the syrup as an alternative for sugar. What makes this recipe so delightful is the fact you just need to prepare it in three easy steps. Tadah! It also means the ingredients are already in your pantry so as we promised, you won’t spend a lot.

Make a toast to us when you put this together. Cheers!
