( vanilla )

January 20, 2012

this is sandra juto's coffee. not mine.

i happen to be a vanilla latte fiend.
wake. shower. vanilla latte.
it's a daily routine.

after a while, shelling out $7 a bottle for vanilla syrup gets old.
so, feeling adventurous, i wandered into the kitchen & attempted to make my own.

// vanilla syrup //

1.5 cups sugar
2 cups water
bring barely to a boil, just until the sugar dissolves
stir in a tablespoon of a good quality vanilla extract
bottle & refrigerate.

cheap & easy.

(simple syrup is usually 1:1 sugar and water
but we've reduced the sugar and haven't missed it a bit.)
