Notes

  1. The syrup makes enough for 4 cocktails. Extra syrup is delicious drizzled over fruit salad or as a sweetener for coffee or iced tea! 
  2. If storing the syrup, you can add a teaspoon of vodka to the syrup to extend it's shelf life. The syrup will last about 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
