Vanilla Syrup


Another syrup very used on tiki drinks is the Vanilla Syrup.

This is a very easy syrup to make at home, you only need sugar, water and vanilla beans, and, of course, the homemade version is always better than the commercial.

In this syrup, I prefer to use white sugar and let the syrup take the golden color of the vanilla.

Vanilla Syrup
It makes about 250ml of syrup.
  • 200g Sugar
  • 250 ml Water
  • 2 Vanilla Beans
  1. Make a cut in the vanilla beans longwise and put it on a saucepan with the sugar and the water.
  2. Bring to a boil with medium heat, stirring frequently to dissolve the sugar.
  3. When it starts boiling, low the heat and cover the saucepan. Simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. Remove the saucepan from heat and let sit and cool for at least 2 hours.
  5. Then strain with coffee filters (or cheesecloth) and bottle it.
  6. It should be stored on the fridge. It'll last for about a month.
