Allow the syrup to cool to room temperature and use as you like. I store mine in some simple glass bottles to make pouring easy.

  1. I added the zest of 1.5 oranges and the juice of 3 oranges. Enhanced the orange flavour for what will be it’s intended use. I also added 1 cinneman stick. Didn’t overpower it, just gived it a little twist.

  2. Has anyone ever tried this one with a reduced amount of sugar? Curious if it would still work with, say, half the added sugar
