How to make Burnt Sugar Syrup

Updated: Mar 22

One of the keys to our Old Fashioned is our burnt sugar simple syrup.


1 cup granulated white sugar

to a hot pan.

Allow the sugar to begin to caramelize over medium high heat. Resist the urge to stir.

Once you see the brown edges of the sugar bubbling around the outside of the pan, stir.

Let caramelize for a while longer and then stir again.

Once there are no white granules remaining and there is a thick, caramel-colored liquid in your pan, (takes about 15 to 20 minutes) turn the heat down and be super careful to slowly add

1 cup hot water

It will boil very hard, so stand back. After it settles down, turn the heat back up and boil to dissolve all the caramelized sugar.

Cool and keep refrigerated when not using.
