Simple syrup is the essential ingredient to so many cocktails, so making this key ingredient sugar free is pretty much life changing.
The first time I made it, I used erythritol and was devastated when it all crystallized and rendered itself useless. Not that I’m against the use of erythritol at all, far from it. I just don’t like using it in recipes that need to be cold as it has a nasty habit of crystallizing.
On to the recipe!
Simple syrup is super easy to make, all you need is your sweetener. My preferred one for this purpose is Allulose. Allulose is a relatively new sweetener on the market. I find it tastes the same as sugar and has almost the same texture as well, but it contains minimal calories and carbs. It also does not upset your stomach like some of the alcohol sugars can.
This recipe is pretty simple. It is for a straight simple syrup where it is 1:1 with water, adjusted here because the sweetener is not quite as sweet as sugar.
There are endless variations to the recipe, you can even add herbs and spices! I’ll be posting other syrup recipes soon!
Let me know how yours turns out.
Hope you enjoy it!
If you prefer this less sweet, use only 1 cup
