Simply Syrup



This post is going to be  short and sweet. It reflects how simple making syrup for cocktails is in the Thermomix.

200g raw sugar, 240g water. Cook for 5 mins / 100C / speed 2. Pour into sterilised bottles. Add dried chillies, vanilla pods, star anise  to flavour as you will. Seal when cooled. Keeps for months!

Done. Short, simple, sweet.
