Lemon syrup

Lemon syrup ingredient for cocktails

Lemon syrup is a great way to bring the bright flavor of citrus into any drink, even in seasons where good citrus is scarce.

You can find pre-made lemon syrup at grocery stores or online, but every brand we’ve tasted pales in comparison to the simple recipe we found on Martha Stewart’s website.

Combine equal parts sugar and water in a small saucepan – we usually start with two cups (or roughly 500mL) of each. Add the zest from one lemon, and bring to a low boil. Stir it and keep it going until you can no longer see any granules of sugar.

Strain the syrup through a fine mesh sieve. Let it cool completely, and stir in 6oz (or about 180mL) of lemon juice. Store in the refrigerator for at least a few weeks, possibly more.

Gut mit Luft nach oben

Ich war auf der Suche nach einer Cocktail Datenbank mit der ich mir zuverlässig die Drinks anzeigen lassen kann, für die ich auch die Zutaten im Hause habe. Mit Cocktail Flow klappt das leider nicht verlässlich. Dieses Programm macht das vorbildlich und vor allem listet es die Cocktails auch danach auf, wo mir noch eine, zwei usw. Zutaten fehlt. So kann ich auch immer schauen was ich mir ggf. noch kaufen sollte. Die Auswahl an Getränken ist gut, jedoch mit wenig Sirup-haltigen. Hier würd ich mir mehr Rezepte wünschen wo man die div. Fruchtsirupe einsetzen kann. Auch gibt es leider keine Möglichkeit Cocktails als Favoriten zu kennzeichnen oder das Rezept zu exportieren. Da das Programm nur in Englisch ist muss man in der Zutatenliste manchmal googlen was damit gemeint ist. Mit ein paar Rezepten mehr, Favoritenfunktion und Lokalisierung gibt es fünf Sterne.
Translation: I was looking for a cocktail database with which I can reliably display the drinks for which I also have the ingredients in the house. Unfortunately, this does not work reliably with cocktail flow. This program does the exemplary and above all it lists the cocktails also after, where I still missing one, two etc. ingredients. So I can always look what I should possibly buy. The selection of drinks is good, but with little syrup-containing. Here I would want more recipes where you can use the div. Fruit syrups. Unfortunately, there is no way to mark cocktails as favorites or to export the recipe. Since the program is only in English you have to googling in the list of ingredients sometimes what is meant by that. With a few more recipes, favorites and localization, there are five stars.
