Homemade coffee syrups - cheap and delicious. :) I like to make almond-flavored syrup (using the same idea as the vanilla) for a more economical flavored coffee experience. A Beautiful Mess hits another home run.
Add 2 cups sugar and 1 cup water into saucepan ans stir over medium heat to dissolve sugar. Bring to a boil and then immediately remove from heat. Dont allow mixture to boil for longer than a minute or your syrup will be too thick.
