Nutty Simple Syrups

Updated: Jan 6, 2021

The world of flavored simple syrups can even include nuts. Our favorite? Hazelnut! It could add complexity to any chocolate or coffee cocktail.

How to do it?

Simple.

- Choose desired nut. (Hazelnut, walnut, macadamia, pecan, the list goes on and on.)

- Roast nuts on a baking sheet at 400 degrees until they become fragrant and begin to take on color.

- Remove from oven and let cool completely.

- If the nut has a shell (like hazelnuts) grab a handful and rub the nuts together till the shell falls off. Don't stress too hard about getting all the shell off.

- Give nuts a rough chop, don't chop the pieces too small.

- In a small saucepan mix 1 cup sugar with 1 cup water until the sugar dissolves.

- Add 1 cup nuts to mixture, bring to boil, then reduce to simmer.

- Simmer 10 minutes, turn heat off and let cool 10 minutes.

- Strain syrup into airtight container with cheesecloth, if necessary.
