You know, those amazing delicious concoctions in a bottle that you see at every coffee shop? Flavors like caramel, or french vanilla that take a cup of coffee (or hot chocolate) from delicious to heavenly in one single shot?
Yep. And pay $4 a bottle for (or more) if you are purchasing them in the store?
Guess what I am teaching you how to make today?
How about Gingerbread Flavor?Â Or Amaretto?
Or the ever-popular Handy Hubby’s favorite, Caramel?
That is what I am sharing today, just for you.
And I promise you, once you start making these, it will spark your creativity and you will find not only are they FABULOUSLY FRUGAL, but they are delicious and easy as well!
Blessings to you and yours,
Syrups are one of the simplest things to make, so use these as a springboard to create your own variations! Imagine having your own Candycane Mocha at Christmas next year, or a Carmel Macchiato all on your own. Start simple, and expand from there! 🙂

These syrups are shelf stable, and make wonderful birthday gifts tucked in a little basket with a coffee cup, your loved one’s favorite brand of coffee, and a chocolate covered spoon. The syrup will crystallize over time, but can easily be brought back to liquid goodness with heating in a pan of water on low.
