We were at Costco the other day and tried this raspberry syrup.
It was amazing. So I made pumpkin spice pancakes and used it. Delicious.
But then I kinda got to thinking…
What is syrup but flavored sugar? And so I decided to try an experiment. I made a batch of ice tea using raspberry tea bags and ordinary tea bags.
Then added the syrup.
No, I didn’t pour half a bottle in, just about 1/4 cup into 3 quarts of tea. Yes, I do drink my tea straight, unless I’m sick, but that’s another blog, so I didn’t want to go too sweet.
Really what I wanted was an amped up raspberry flavor.
Instead it was elevated but not amped up. So I’ll be tweaking the recipe a bit over the week to find the perfect balance of raspberry without becoming too sticky sweet.
Until next time.
