Vanilla SyrupCuisinart Original Recipe
Adding the vanilla syrup to a glass of soda water is reminiscent of a light cream soda. Throw in a shot of rum or vodka and then pour over ice.
1 ½ cups Simple Syrup (Version 1)
1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
1 . Bring the syrup to a boil in a small saucepan. Once it boils, remove pan from heat and add the split vanilla pod. Cover and steep for 30 minutes.
2 . Allow to cool completely. Transfer syrup, including the vanilla pod, to an airtight container and allow to steep for 8 to 10 hours in the refrigerator. The syrup can remain in the refrigerator for up to one month.
