How to make earl grey simple syrup
Making earl grey simple syrup is the same as making any simple syrup.
First, you will need to brew some strong earl grey tea. Place 3 tea bags in 1.5 cups boiling water and steep for 6 minutes.
Second, remove the tea and add to a pot with 1.5 cups of sugar.
Bring this to a boil and allow it to simmer until thickened. The longer you simmer it, the thicker it will get. I simmered mine for about 15 minutes once it reached a boil.
Where to use it
Make a homemade soda
Just add syrup to club soda, add ice and enjoy!
Make a flavored latte
Add a little earl grey syrup to a strongly brewed cup of coffee with some milk for a delicious latte. If you are a lavender latte fan like me, you will love it!
Use it in cocktails
Truth be told, I’m not a big cocktail drinker but I know this would work great in a cocktail! Here’s a good one to check out.
