Old Fashioned Vanilla Simple Syrup Recipe

Sharing is caring!

Simple Syrup. It reminds me of my grandmother. Long before time and industry, as we know it, there was a simpler existence, a corner soda fountain. Sundaes and sodas crafted from homemade flavors making even the simplest taste seem extraordinary. It was while Charlotte the Great worked at a Soda Fountain that the Peanut Butter and Pickle Sandwich was introduced to my family.

While the traditional soda fountain corner shop has closed, we can take our sips to a homemade old-fashioned sweetness with this simple vanilla syrup recipe.

Try it in Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Orange Soda, and more with a flair for flavor! A little or a lot, it’s up to you.

This recipe is a 2:1 simple syrup. More common is the one-to-one: equal parts sugar and water.

This method uses the heating process. It’s less work and has a longer shelf life because it has been sterilized by the higher temperature. You could also do a cold press, where you combine the ingredients in a jar, put on a lid, and shake vigorously until the sugar dissolves.
