Faygo was too sweet, Barrel Brothers had nifty ingredients but meh flavor, while Dang! smelled better than it tasted. We kept a list and everything and sadly, I cannot find a photo of the list...I'm sure I took a photo, of course I took a photo but did I put the photo in a place I could find it? Sigh.
We is classy folks.

As I lean towards the semi-fancy, my simple syrup has a twist. I make mine flavored. it is super easy to do, all you need is a handful or so of your favorite fresh herb, washed and dried. I recently made up a batch of minted syrup, perfect for iced tea, two-squeeze lemonade and mojitos (of course!), and a batch of cinnamon syrup perfect for iced coffee and golden cadiallacs.
I wanted to make up a couple of batches both because of the great visit, and because I am currently on an iced coffee fix and need to purge myself of my fondness for Coffee-mate's Natural Bliss. It helped that I kept the containers and so off I went.
