Tragedy struck yesterday when we ran out of vanilla syrup for our lattes! Talk about your first-world problems!
I was shocked the last time I purchased a bottle, since I don't think vanilla syrup is worth $7.50. Thankfully, the internet exists and I was able to quickly find a simple recipe that only uses three ingredients that I already have!
3/4 Cup of water
3/4 Cup of sugar
3 Tablespoons of quality vanilla
That's it! You pretty much make hummingbird food for your coffee!
All you have to do is stir together the sugar and water over medium heat until the sugar is completely dissolved- it should be clear.
Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla.
Just store it in a sealable bottle- I used a vinegar/oil container with a sealing lid and it fit perfectly! Store it in the fridge and you're good to go! I read that this should only keep for 2 weeks, but correct me if it will last longer, as it seems it should!
Enjoy and happy Thursday! I think I might go make myself an afternoon vanilla latte now...
