No. 1

Prepare Vanilla Bean Syrup by adding a split vanilla bean & the seeds to the warm sugar syrup once it has been removed from the heat. Let stand for 10 minutes. Remove the pod & pour the mixture through a fine wire sieve. Conversely, two tablespoons of pure vanilla extract may be substituted for the vanilla bean. Stir the extract into the syrup once the sugar has dissolved & the mixture has been removed from the heat. 

No. 2

Mint Simple Syrup lends excellent taste notes to bourbon cocktails in particular. Steep a handful of leaves or sprigs for 10 minutes. Pour through a wire sieve to collect the solids. Press well with a wooden spoon to release every drop of flavor from the herbs.

No. 3

Ginger Simple Syrup can be prepared with 2 tablespoons freshly grated ginger. Impart a subtle citrus note with a tablespoon of fresh lemon or lime.
