Ingredients

pomegranate ginger simple syrup

  • 2 cups pomegranate juice
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar or honey
  • 2 inches fresh ginger sliced

cinnamon spice simple syrup

vanilla chai simple syrup

cranberry orange simple syrup

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar or honey
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 4 orange slices

Instructions

pomegranate ginger simple syrup

  • 1. In a medium pot, bring the pomegranate juice, honey (or sugar), and ginger to a boil over high heat. Once boiling simmer 1-2 minutes and then remove from the heat. Let cool completely. Strain out the ginger. Transfer to glass jar. Store in the fridge for up to 1 month.

cinnamon spice simple syrup

  • 1. In a medium pot, bring the water, honey (or sugar), cinnamon, cardamom, and vanilla bean to a boil over high heat. Once boiling simmer 3-5 minutes and then remove from the heat. Add the peppercorns. Let cool completely and then strain into jars. I like to add the cinnamon sticks and vanilla bean to the jars as well. Store in the fridge for up to 1 month.

vanilla chai simple syrup

  • 1. In a medium pot, bring the water to a boil. Remove from the heat, add the chai tea bags, cover and steep 10-15 minutes. Remove the tea bags and add the honey. Bring to a boil over high heat. Boil 3-5 minutes, then remove from the heat. Stir in the vanilla. Let cool and then pour into jars. Keep in the fridge for up to 1 month.

cranberry orange simple syrup

  • 1. In a medium pot, bring the water, the honey, cranberries, thyme, and orange slices to a boil over high heat. Boil 5 minutes or until the cranberries begin to burst, then remove from the heat. Let cool. Remove the thyme and orange. If desired, strain out the cranberries. Pour into jars. Keep stored in the fridge for up two weeks (even with the cranberries) or up to 1 month (without cranberries).
