I’m obviously in a syrup frame of mind at the moment! They are just so handy to have in the fridge to add extra oomph to drinks and desserts.
Again, I made this one with milkshakes in mind, but you can also try it in cocktails or poured over cakes. It has a subtle earl grey tea flavour which works especially well with lemon, dried fruit or chocolate.
- 1 cup caster sugar
- 1 cup water
- 3 earl grey tea bags
- Combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan. Stir over high heat until sugar dissolves.
- Bring to the boil. Cook for 3-5 minutes, until syrupy. Add the tea bags and set aside to cool for 30 minutes.
- Discard the tea bags. Store the syrup in the fridge for up to 1 month.
