Nutty Simple Syrups

Updated: Jan 6

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.
