Ditch the Simple Syrup in Your Cocktails
Simple syrup is one of the most common ingredients in cocktails. It can be found in everything form mojitos to whiskey sours. But what is it exactly? The answer is both simple and sad: sugar and water. For anyone who hasn't ever made simple syrup, it's merely water with sugar dissolved over heat. With so many cocktail mixers already containing loads of sugar, what's the need to add more?
Now, we're not suggesting you give up cocktails altogether. We're merely on the side of reducing your sugar consumption whenever possible. Enter stevia simple syrup. Since stevia is 200x sweeter than sugar, the recipe isn't quite identical. But with just some minor modifications to the ratio, you'll be back in business and mixing like a pro in no time.
