DIY-Flavored Coffee Syrups

Adding my "tsp" of vanilla...such precise measurements.
We have an espresso machine so we know first hand how expensive the flavored syrups can be. A small bottle costs over three dollars and you get about  12 oz...

Well, mine costs about fifty cents for that much. Put 2 cups of water and one cup of sugar in a saucepan and boil, stirring often until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and add a tsp. of vanilla or other extract. I also use those tiny candy flavorings, but you'll only need a few drops of those...start with a little and taste.
Store in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
