How to make brown sugar simple syrup

A simple, simple syrup recipe.


This recipe is extremely simple, and I don’t have much to say about it.

This was requested from you all, as you’ve loved my Starbucks Iced brown sugar oat milk shake espresso recipe.

It has become hugely popular on the site, and I’ve been so excited to see your comments about loving it.

While In that recipe you can use Torani syrup, or just add brown sugar and let it dissolve with the hot coffee, here’s another option if you’d like to make it, and know that the sugar in your drink will be completely dissolved.

How to make your own brown sugar syrup.

To DIY your own brown sugar simple syrup you need two ingredients: brown sugar, and water.

You heat both ingredients in a saucepan until they dissolve.

Once it dissolves, let it come to room temp, and you can store it in a mason jar, or another vessel with an airtight lid.

What if I’m low carb or on the keto diet? Can I still make Brown Sugar Syrup?

The answer to this is yes. It uses the same method, just use your sweetener of choice.
