Liquid sugar for iced tea

Postby teabird » Jan 22nd, '09, 21:21

Since Sugar Shots usually are out of stock everywhere, maybe Adagio should carry a liquid sugar. It's useful for iced tea.

(Note: I don't adulterate my iced tea, but my husband does...)
thanks!

Teabird, you can make a simple syrup by taking one cup of sugar and one cup of water, boil in a saucepan until the sugar dissolves, then cool and keep in the refrigerator. It mixes well in iced tea since the sugar is dissolved into the water.

This is also a main ingredient in true authentic Margaritas. just make some fresh lime juice, maybe add some grand marnier/cointreau, and tequila and it is party time!

I second ( or third! ) the advise already posted, this is also called in some circles "Simple Syrup", "Syrup", or "Classic Syrup".

This video also explains the process, and shows the result!

Hope it helps!

Also good if you put some lemon peel in the boil.
If that's your thing. :wink:

I have never tried that. Seems sorta cool. I have never seen liquid sugar either.
