This adds a citrusy sweet touch to any drink, baked goods or even frosting! Plus it only requires three ingredients.

You can prepare it for a quick, citrusy drink or mocktail then save some for making that gluten-free chocolate cake extra moist.

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

It’s also a lovely touch when splashed into our Thanksgiving mocktails or crockpot apple cider.

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! 

You can even give this recipe a go using our brown sugar simple syrup instructions for a bit more of a warm caramel flavor. Or get floral and fruity by combining it with our rose simple syrup!

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!

How do you store it?

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.

How long do infused blends last?

You can keep infused blends for 1-2 weeks at room temperature or 3 weeks to a 1 month in the refrigerator. Once it starts to get cloudy or discolored, it is no longer good.
