 Oh mama.

This syrup is perfectly sweet and salty.

It works well in coffee and tea.

And cocktails.

Especially cocktails…

This is very simple to make and much more rewarding.

To begin, combine 2 cups of sugar, 1 cup of water and a teaspoon (make a heaping one if you like 😉 ) of salt.

Stir over medium heat until the sugar and salt have dissolved. Once they dissolve, bring the syrup to boil and let it bubble for about 10-20 minutes until it has turned into an amber-like color. DO NOT STIR while it’s bubbling.

At this point, turn the heat off and VERY CAREFULLY add a cup of hot water to the syrup and stir until everything is fully combined. It will bubble up violently for a short while when you add the water. Allow the syrup to cool and then transfer it into an airtight container.

I went ahead and made a quick cocktail with ingredients I already had on hand, but I will be coming up with some more salted caramel cocktails soon.
