Like many people, I consider coffee to be an essential part of my day. On chaotic mornings, it’s often the one thing that is able to motivate me to get work done. However, I’m very particular about my coffee preferences, especially when it comes to flavor. My personal favorite is a cup of vanilla iced coffee. It’s the perfect balance between sweet and bitter and gives me that extra boot of energy that you sometimes need in the morning.
I typically make coffee at home rather than buy it. It’s ultimately cheaper and much less of a hassle. My favorite flavoring for at home coffee is the Torani Vanilla Syrup. I highly recommend Torani, even if you aren’t looking for vanilla syrup. The company offers a wide variety of flavors, many of which are very unique and interesting.
I found this dupe for the Torani Vanilla Syrup online the other day and it seemed like a useful recipe to share. It’s a quick and easy process with a small list of ingredients. Plus, it makes a whopping thirty-two servings per batch. It’s basically the blueprint to making restaurant-quality coffee in the comfort of your house.
What You’ll Need:
- 2 1/2 cups water
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 4 tablespoons vanilla extract
- 2 cups white sugar
(Talk about an uncomplicated ingredients list.)
- In a saucepan, place your sugars and water.
- Boil the mixture for approximately ten minutes, making sure to stir.
- Allow the mix to cool. Once the temperature has cooled down, add in the vanilla extract.
Altogether this process usually takes me twenty-five to thirty minutes. The boiling itself doesn’t take that long. I simply like to give my syrup plenty of time to cool down before mixing in the vanilla.
