Simple syrup is 1 part sugar to 1 part water. A staple in any beverage maker's repertoire.
All Natural Strawberry Lemonade
This homemade strawberry lemonade is tart and tasty with a sweet kick!
Perky Pineapple Sipper
This delicious drink is inspired by the flavors of a 1960s cocktail, the Mr. Bali Hai, which usually requires simple syrup, pineapple juice, and three bottles of booze (two rums and a coffee liqueur). For a neat cheat, I coffee-washed a gold aged rum and made the simple syrup right in the shaker. Garnish with pineapple fronds and lime wedges.
Who would believe that beer would be the perfect solution to eradicating fluorescent green margaritas? Well, it is! Best to use not-so-micro brews to avoid an overpowering beer flavor. Use the limeade can to measure the ingredients, and adjust with extra water if the mixture seems too sweet. Straining the pulp is always a good idea, unless, of course, you like pulp!
Just in time for summer... A sweet and tangy vodka drink perfect for the outdoor gathering.
This is one of my favorite recipes I have borrowed from a friend. If you love watermelon, this is the perfect drink for a hot summer day!
