Yes, I did it.

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.
