It’s Tips for Tuesday!
This week’s tip: Celebrate National Coffee Day, by making an espresso syrup!
What better way to celebrate National Coffee Day, than to ‘upcyle’ your coffee and make syrup 🙂
I absolutely love coffee, especially Greek and Italian varieties. One of my favorites is espresso, either straight or in an iced latte. Espresso has such a rich and distinct coffee flavor, and makes a delicious syrup. This syrup is super simple to make and can be used in a variety of ways. If you like espresso as much as I do, you will enjoy this syrup. It is very reminiscent of coffee candy.
Use as an amazing ice-cream topping (either warm or cold) or try drizzled on toast, biscuits, pancakes, or even a cake. I tried it on brioche recently….yum! Use it to flavor milk (1 to 2 Tbsp added to 1 cup of milk) or for an extra punch in your iced latte. The sky is the limit!
Stay tuned on Thursday, for a delicious Greek treat perfect to accompany your coffee!
- 1/2 cup sugar (I use sugar in the raw)
