HOW TO USE SYRUPS

All of the homemade syrups mentioned, especially the vanilla one, workwonderfully in iced coffee. Make espresso or use coffee from a mocha pot, add milk, a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a teaspoon of syrup. I personally recommend almond syrup or cinnamon syrup. If you want to add the syrup to a cappuccino or latte, whisk the syrup in with the milk already. The flavors will blend better.

How to make homemade orange syrup for coffee

  • 1 cup sugar

It is most ideal to use ORGANIC oranges that have not been treated with chemical sprays. If you are unsure of the origin of the fruit, clean it thoroughly before using. Lemon juice mixed with a little baking soda or vinegar is best. Then rinse and dry well.

Peel the rind of the oranges in a saucepan and juice the oranges. When peeling, try not to get too much of the white flesh, which has a bitter taste. Add the juice to the orange peel in the pot. Add water and sugar. Bring the mixture to a boil and then immediately turn down the heat and let the syrup reduce (by about ⅓ of its volume) over a low heatfor about 30 minutes . Then set the syrup aside and, when cool, strain and pour into a glass.

Homemade chocolate syrup from Granka and recipe on Babycino

More than one chocolate lover likes the recipe for chocolate syrup made from real cocoa powder just described above. But younger foodies prefer warm cocoa rather than dark chocolate. For them, and I believe not only for them, you can make an alternative version of chocolate syrup from Granko. The procedure is the same, just replace the cocoa powder with the children's favourite Granko.

This syrup can then easily be used to make your children's cappuccino or babycino. Omit the espresso, of course. Add a little syrupto the cup (depending on the volume of the cup and the taste) and dilute it with a drop of water - lo and behold, there's ababy espresso - andtop it up with whipped milk, just like a classic cappuccino . If you're going to get your baby "coffee drinkers" to climb, fine-tune their babycino to Latte Art perfection with a bear or other animalmotif.

Instructions for caramel coffee syrup

But be careful to watch your syrup so that it doesn't caramelize properly at this point and start to brown and burn. Otherwise it will taste bitterly of burnt caramel.
