This adds a citrusy sweet touch to any drink, baked goods or even frosting! Plus it only requires three ingredients.
This sweetener is tart and fruity. It adds a touch of that to anything you are making, baking or drinking. I especially love to add it to these mocktails…
- Non-alcoholic mimosa mocktail
- Prosecco drink
- Blackberry lemonade
- Non-alcoholic gin and tonic
- Lavender lemonade
- Grapefruit mocktail
Can I use any sugar?
Any sugar can be used for this recipe. From cane sugar to coconut sugar and date sugar to raw sugar, they all work great!

With just few things and a couple of minutes, you can make this delicious and fresh sweetener with just a hint of citrus.

What type of oranges should I use?
Any orange works great but cara cara are one of my favorites. Blood oranges are much more rich in color and provide a bit ofd different flavor. Valencia and Jaffa also work great!

It can be stored at room temperature or in the refrigerator, whichever you prefer. You can use a glass or plastic container just be sure it is cooled before pouring if you are going to use plastic.
Does it need to be refrigerated?
Simple syrup does not need to be refrigerated. It handles well at room temperature.
