This two-ingredient coffee syrup recipe can be used to flavor alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, cakes, or used as an ice cream topping.
This is a coffee-flavored syrup using the normal proportions of a simple syrup, which is one part sugar to one part water or other liquid. Be sure to use extra-strength coffee to maximize the amount of coffee flavor that comes through.
1 cup white sugar
1 cup extra-strength brewed coffee
Gather the ingredients.
In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar and extra-strength coffee. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly to dissolve sugar.
Lower heat and simmer for 3 minutes, stirring often.
Transfer coffee syrup to a container and let cool to room temperature.
Seal and store tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to 1 month. Use in your favorite food and drink recipes, and enjoy!
- For the best flavor, make the syrup with the strongest coffee you can brew. One option is to cold-brew 3/4 cup coarsely ground coffee in 1 cup of cold water; at this concentrated ratio, it should only need to steep for a few hours before straining out the coffee.
- A stove-top espresso pot and French press make concentrated coffee as well, and they're much quicker methods. You can always add more beans and use less water in your favorite brewer.
- Use the finished coffee syrup to flavor milk and milkshake drinks, alcoholic cocktails, and as a topping for desserts or ice cream.
