Jazz Up Your Cocktails with Tasty DIY Flavored Syrups

I'm sort of a cocktail aficionado...in that I have a fully-stocked bar cabinet in my house. My favorite parts are the little things that take a drink over the top; that next level that will have your friends asking for your secret. And, friends, flavored syrups are a great way to get there. Check out how you can whip up some of your very own in your kitchen!

Basically, there's one formula you need to know and then the sky's the limit. Check it out.

  • 1 part water
  • 1 part sugar
  • 1 part flavoring ingredient (chopped fruit or vegetables, sprigs of herbs or a combination)

Drink of the Week has a full list of suggestions to make your syrups the talk of the town. Head on over to get the cooking instructions!

PS: They also make fantastic gifts! Tie one up in a dish towel and give it the hostess of the next party you attend.
