Kitchen Hack: Improvised Cocktails
How many times have you been in a situation when you are making cocktails, only to realize your recipe calls for simple syrup, but you do not have any on hand? This kitchen hack will save you in a S4 (simple syrup shortage situation) as well as it may put a tastier twist to your already favorite libation.
Hack #9: Improvised Cocktails
Substitute the amount of simple syrup that your cocktail recipe calls for with an equal amount of jelly or syrup. Any flavor will do: maple syrup, apricot jelly, grape jelly, agave syrup, etc. Just be sure to choose one that will enhance or compliment the flavors of the cocktail recipe.
Here is a perfect example:
Improvised Tom Collins
- 1.5 oz dry london gin
- 1 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 1 oz lemon jelly (originally simple syrup)
- club soda
- lemon garnish
Try a variation of your own and share it with me!
