Fall Simple Syrup
It’s that time of year- leaves are changing, pumpkin patches are full, and comforting, warm drinks are on everyone’s minds. Homemade simple syrups are a fun way to add flavor and personalization to your coffee, tea, mocktail, or adult beverage.

Simple syrups are easy to make, highly customizable, and can be created without any questionable ingredients you may find in a prepackaged mix. Jar Store’s 11 oz Oil and Vinegar Bottles with Stainless Steel Spouts are perfect vessels to store and use your sweet creations.

Basic Simple Syrup Recipe

½ cup white sugar

½ cup water

Bring water to a boil, add sugar and stir until dissolved. Remove and cover mixture to cool completely, then pour into bottle for use.

Try the 1:1 base with brown sugar for a deeper, caramelized flavor. Substitute the white sugar for honey or maple for an easier way to dissolve the thicker consistencies into your drink- start with a 1:1 ratio and modify per your taste. You can also use your favorite alternative sweetener for a low or no calorie syrup by checking your preferred brand’s website for recommended ratio.

Adding Flavor

After mastering your favorite base, up your game by adding flavor. While the base is dissolving, try some of these additions:

For the ever-popular vanilla or almond syrups, add one teaspoon of vanilla or almond extract.

Add fresh squeezed and zested citrus.

Simmer one cup of fresh herbs, such as mint, rosemary, or basil. Strain after cooling.

Fall Spices

Try some of these classic fall flavors in your apple cider, hot chocolate, or coffee!

Pumpkin Spice: Wisk two teaspoons of pumpkin spice and ¼ cup of canned or fresh pumpkin puree while water and sugar are boiling. Strain after cooling.

Ginger: add one cup of peeled, sliced ginger to the dissolved sugar, and cover pot with the heat off. Strain after cooling. (tip: larger chunks of ginger will be easier to strain than finely shredded).

Chai: simmer a bag of chai tea with your brown sugar base. Allow the bag to remain in the pot as the mixture cools and remove before bottling.

Pumpkin Spice: Wisk two teaspoons of pumpkin spice and ¼ cup of canned or fresh pumpkin puree while water and sugar are boiling. Strain after cooling.

Simple syrups easily dissolve and mix into hot or cold drinks and can stay in the refrigerator up to one month. They can also be used in desserts or over waffles and pancakes.  Our Oil and Vinegar Bottles are a beautiful and practical way to elevate your coffee bar or drink station and easily dispense your syrup
