Fall Spiced Simple Syrup
Richer and deeper than pumpkin spice, this fall spiced simple syrup is perfect for use in cocktails and coffee drinks.
½ cup water
½ cup brown sugar
¼ teaspoon cinnamon, or 1 cinnamon stick
3 cardamom pods, crushed
¼ teaspoon ground allspice
pinch ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Whisk together all ingredients except vanilla in a small saucepan.
Bring to a simmer, and continue to simmer for 4-6 minutes to allow the flavors to develop. Let cool, then strain into in an airtight container and store in the fridge until ready to use. It’s good for at least a month in the fridge.
