It was actually so simple, hence the name, that I made peach, rhubarb, strawberry, cherry and pineapple mint. The strawberry was the simplest and the most flavorful. The cherry just kind of tasted like really sweet syrup with a little cherry. The pineapple mint took a really long time. I really should read directions first. You have to let the pineapple and sugars macerate overnight! But it was really tasty, so I'd make it again...
Since I made all the syrups, I thought it would be fun to also serve lemonade, so one could use all those syrups to make a flavored lemonade. And then, why not add sparkling water and Prosecco to the mix?
So my adult guests had a sort of DIY soda/Prosecco bar and the kids got delicious snow cones without artificial colors or flavors! But a lot of sugar. A lot.
Here are the recipes I used:
Rhubarb Simple Syrup
Peach Simple Syrup
Cherry Simple Syrup
Strawberry Simple Syrup
Pineapple Mint Simple Syrup
Some of the moms were a little tipsy after drinking one of my creations. Turns out I'm a little heavy handed on the Prosecco...which is best.
