This demerara simple syrup gets a hint of caramel flavor from the demerara sugar, making it an excellent addition to cocktails, mocktails, coffee, and tea. Ready in under 15 minutes!


  • 1 cup demerara sugar
  • 1 cup water



Substitutions. Instead of demerara sugar use turbinado sugar for less hint of caramel or turn into a plain simple syrup by using white, granulated sugar.

Dissolving sugar. Boil until the sugar dissolves and then simmer for a few minutes after that to ensure the sugar is completely dissolved. Boiling for an extended period of time will boil the water away which we don't want.

Store demerara simple syrup in clean, airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to a month or the freezer for up to 6 months.
