Notes

  • For a mocktail, simply leave out the rum and add more club soda.
  • Simple Syrup Alternatives: Make your own (see below) or stir 1/2 ounce honey into 1/2 ounce hot water, whisking until very smooth.
  • Make it Lower Carb/Lower Sugar: Make your own simple syrup out of a powdered erythritol or allulose. 
 
 
Make Your Own Simple Syrup
  • Put equal parts sugar (or powdered erythritol, or allulose) and water into heatproof glass container.
  • Microwave on high just until mixture barely starts to boil, usually around 1 minute or so. It’s fine if it boils for a few moments.
  • Remove from microwave and stir to dissolve sugar. 
  • Let syrup cool before adding to other ingredients.
