Lemon Simple Syrup
If you want a sweet taste of lemon in your drinks, you can make your own lemon simple syrup at home. This syrup can be used in drinks, ice cream, fudge and cocktails. Lemon simple syrup is easy to make, requiring only 2 ingredients and one saucepan. Similar to orange simple syrup, it is made from lemon juice, zest and sugar. When combined, it gives off a delicious, intense lemon flavour. Try it in lemonade or ice cream.
As it's mainly sugar, it doesn't go bad easily. Lemon syrup can last for six months or more in the fridge. Lemon syrup is excellent for making all sorts of cocktails and is perfect to use instead of simple syrup in lemon drop martinis. It can also be used as a sweetener in margaritas. It will not turn mouldy when frozen.
You can make lemon simple syrup using juice or lemon zest. The lemon zest should be strained before adding it to the sugar. A Microplane zester works well for this process. It focuses on the bright yellow part of the peel and avoids the bitter white pith. This process requires three weeks for the syrup to fully infuse. Once strained, the syrup will be ready for use.
If you want to add an extra zest of lemon, simply add a few drops of lemon or lime juice to a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir to combine the sweetener and water. Cook until the mixture is clear and no sugar granules or honey swirls are visible. The syrup can be used immediately or stored for several months. If there are excesses, you can refrigerate the simple syrup and use it whenever you want.
Other liquids and sweeteners can be added to the simple syrup. White wine or rose wine can be used to make a cocktail syrup. The fibrous middle of pineapple adds a tropical flavor. You can also use already-squeezed citrus fruit to flavor your simple syrups. Unlike regular sugar, coconut sugar has a pronounced taste. This simple syrup is a must-have for any bartender.
Making Lemon Simple Syrup can be a simple process if you have the necessary tools. Lemon juice and lemon zest can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week, so you don't have to deal with them separately. It is important to make lemon simple syrup correctly because lemons vary in the amount of juice they produce. When making your own lemon syrup, you need to remember that lemons contain more than just juice!
Meyer Lemon: Another excellent flavoring for syrups and infusions is Meyer Lemon. This hybrid of mandarin/pomelo and citron is not widely available in the Western world, but California chefs discovered it in the 1970s and have been using it ever since. The zesty, lemony flavor is reminiscent of a fresh citrus drink. So don't wait to use your own lemons to add that zesty flavor to your dishes and drinks.
Lemon Simple Syrup is a versatile ingredient. Its versatility allows you to use it year-round. It can be used in fruity cocktails like the Blackberry Collins, sangria recipes, and sodas. It can be used in desserts as well, adding a soft, velvety texture to fluffy whipped cream. But remember to use simple syrup sparingly.
When making a cocktail, you can use simple syrup in many recipes. It is an excellent sweetener and enhances the flavour of cocktails. For the holiday season, try peppermint flavoured syrup for a refreshing drink. If you aren't a fan of alcohol, you can also try peppermint flavoured syrup. But if you want a more economical and delicious syrup, it is better to make it yourself.
