Bonus Tutorial: DIY Homemade Coffee Syrups . ..

I just love the ladies over at A Beautiful Mess; stylish and chic and full of clever ideas for dressing up your vintage fashion and turning the everyday into something extraordinary!

And if you've got a coffee nut for a friend or family member, they are going to be simply delighted with this delicious homemade coffee syrup that you can whip up in your very own kitchen in a matter of minutes!  See for yourself . . .



For the Vanilla Syrup you need: 2 cups water, 2 cups sugar and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (the clear kind is much preferred here). In a small pot heat your water and sugar over low/medium heat, stirring constantly until the sugar has dissolved. Now stir in your vanilla extract and pour into your dispenser.

For the Raspberry Syrup you need: 2 cups water, 2 cups sugar and 1/2 cup fresh raspberries. In a small pot heat your water and sugar over low/medium heat, stirring constantly until the sugar has dissolved. Mash up the raspberries a little and then stir them in with the syrup, allow this to mingle for 3-5 minutes. Pour through a fine-mesh strainer to filter out any large raspberry pieces and seeds. Then pour into your dispenser.

For the Caramel Syrup you need: 2 cups water, 2 cups sugar and 1/2 cup caramel syrup. In a small pot heat your water and sugar over low/medium heat, stirring constantly until the sugar has dissolved. Now stir in your caramel until well combined and pour into your dispenser.
