Brown Sugar Syrup in Practice – What can Brown Do for you?

Another followup to my post on basic syrupsIMG_0485

Brown sugar is to regular sugar as premium is to regular gasoline.  There isn’t a lot of kick to it, but you’re getting a better quality product.

Brown sugar is really just white sugar with the molasses added back in.  This means that you’re getting a lot of the flavors that sugar cane has put back into your product.

I haven’t really played with the differences in light and dark brown sugar but light brown gives some very rich character to the syrup.

 

 

For the test drink I wanted to make something that would pull on that richness but be fairly classic.  I call it “What Can Brown Do for You?”

1.5 oz Bourbon
0.5 oz Lemon Juice
0.5 oz Brown Sugar Syrup

Shake over ice, strain into glass.

It’s not really an old fashioned but it’s pretty good all on it’s own.
