Spring, Spring, Spring. What does it make you think of?? For me – lemons come to mind when I think of spring. That gorgeous yellow- that fresh flavor. That zing! It’s that time – so I decided to make up some Simple Lemon Syrup to keep on hand. It’s great for mixed drinks like a Lemon Drop Martini or just mixed in some iced tea. It can also be used in recipes for baked goods or really anything you would want to add a little sweet lemon flavor to. I love this syrup for it’s versatility & it’s incredibly fresh lemon flavor. It’s something that I will make again & again all through summer. Definitely a staple in my fridge during the warmer months.
Love that soft yellow color. Makes me smile.
This really is super yummy mixed in to so many things.

So you made lemonade…

No- this is a lemon flavored simple syrup- mainly used for mixed drinks. I wouldn’t recommend drinking this straight.

The syrup sounds delightful but the container it is in is delightful too! Where did you get it?

Oh, I think I may have picked it up at a craft store, but that was at least 6-7 years ago. I found this one that is really similar https://amzn.to/2TfhfRg. But here are some others I found that are super cute too that you might like. https://amzn.to/3a4GBar https://amzn.to/2sk291I https://amzn.to/2NoN5Hr https://amzn.to/30opEn2 https://amzn.to/2t22WF3 https://amzn.to/2soJqSO
