So, as I was reading about all the steps to make the syrups, I thought, What if there were a simple shortcut to flavored syrups?
Now, I am certain that I am not the first impatient (and, let's face it, lazy after work) person to think of this, but in the video below, I show you my shortcut to flavored syrups for all your tiki drinks. After making and cooling the syrup, all you have to do is add the flavorings of your choice. Make an orange bitters syrup by adding licorice and orange flavorings; add vanilla or cinnamon, cherry, almond, rum, mint... anything you can imagine (and buy the food flavorings for), you can add to a simple syrup and add it to your next luau drink!
Watch me make it here:
The recipe for making drink I make at the end of the video is as follows:
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon almond syrup
1 tablespoon cherry syrup
1 tablespoon orange liqueur
1/4 cup pineapple coconut rum
Add all ingredients to shaker and shake to combine. Pour over ice in Old Fashioned glass. Garnish with Maraschino cherries and a lime slice on a cocktail umbrella, if desired.
