Coffee Syrup

Life is sweet!

Only syrup is even sweeter. In my post about coffee soda, I have already shared a recipe on how to make syrup yourself. Now with this hot weather I tried some new stuff in my kitchen to present you something really refreshing for the summer with the right caffeine kick. Admittedly, boiling down syrup makes you sweat and you have to invest some time beforehand. But when the syrup is ready, you can store it in the fridge for a few days and serve your bbq guests a fabolous lemonade.

Cascara Lemonade

Heat 500 ml of water in a saucepan. When the water is boiling add 20 g cascara and a 125 g panela block or other cane sugar. Simmer 5 – 7 min. on a low flame and stir occasionally until the sugar dissolves completely. Now remove the cascara, best through a sieve into another pot and let the syrup boil down for about 30 min until it is thick. Fill in a small bottle and let cool down.

For the lemonade, add some syrup in a glass and rise 3/4 of the way with soda water – add ice cubes (e.g. from cascara tea), if you like, a slice of orange or various fruits. Enjoy preferably with a glass or metal strawis boiling.

Orange-Coffee-Lemonade

Heat 500 ml of water in a saucepan. When the water is boiling add 15-20 g coarsely ground coffee powder and a 125 g panela block or other cane sugar. Simmer 5 min. on a low heat and stir occasionally until the sugar dissolves completely. Then remove the coffee grounds, best through a sieve into another pot and let the syrup boil down for about 30 min until it is thick. Fill in a small bottle and let cool down. The syrup can be kept in the refrigerator for at least 2 weeks.

For the lemonade, pour the juice of half an orange and a little syrup into a glass and fill up 3/4 with soda water – add ice cubes (also made from coffee) and, if you like, add a slice of orange, lime and orange zest or mint. If you like floral notes, you should try a few drops of orange blossom water.
