Here is a very easy and simple recipe for simple syrup. It is easy to make and you can add any type of drink to sweeten it up. You can also add any type of flavoring you like to this to flavor your coffee or teas.
1 cup coconut or other type sugar of choice
1 cup water
- In a small saucepan combine the sugar and water and turn the heat to medium. Allow the sugar to melt and the mixture to come up to a boil. Continue to cook for 2 minutes after it comes to a boil. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.
If you want to add in any flavoring you can do so at the start of the process. Here is a list of add-ins that I like to add to my simple syrups.
1 bunch of mint
1/2 cup blueberries
2 tbsp vanilla extract. 1 tbsp vanilla powder or two vanilla pods scraped and whole.
1 tsp of any flavor extract you like such as almond, coffee, lemon, or other.
date paste or syrup
Allow the flavorings to steep with the simple syrup while cooling. remove any type of herb you add before storing. Strain the fruit before storing.
When the simple syrup is cooled pour into a glass jar with a lid and store in the fridge. I use this to flavor hot or iced coffee’s or teas.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Let me tell you a little bit about me. I am a mom of two, a stepmom of 1, two wild and silly pups, and I have the best husband in the world. I also have a love of cooking and baking. I am always in the kitchen finding new recipes to try, recreating old family recipes, and reminiscing about the old ways. I am vintage at heart and love all things old and cast iron. I love spending time with the family and pups and just going where life takes us.
I created my blog a few years ago with my youtube channel because I thought that If I shared a recipe, then people just might like to see just how the recipe is put together. I share all of my family recipes along with today's recipes. Whether it is old-fashioned recipes, sourdough, einkorn, desserts, sheet pan meals, or even crockpot meals, they are all absolutely delicious.
I spend hours, if not days, creating and dabbling with recipes to make sure they are the best for you and your family. All of my recipes are family tested and family-approved before they are ever posted to my blog or youtube channel.
Every now and again I will share some behind-the-scenes fun and chaos of our creations and family adventures. I hope you all stick around and join us here at The Southern Rustic and see what we cook up in my kitchen. You can find all of my social media information in the Contact/Donate OR the Social Media Accounts tab on my home page. There I have listed my Instagram pages, YouTube channel, Email, and other information so you can easily find everything in one place.
I hope that you all have a wonderful, wonderful day and I will see you soon.
