Natural Cola syrup
Natural Cola with Stevia
Grated zest of 2 oranges Grated zest of 1 large lime Grated Zest of 1 large lemon 1/4 stick Sri Lankan True Cinnamon 1/8 tsp Fresh Grated Nutmeg 1 Section Whole Star Anise crushed 1/2 tsp Dried Lavender 2 tsp Grated Organic Ginger 1 1/2" Tahitian Vanilla Bean split 1/4 tsp citric acid 1/4 Cup Stevia (more or less to taste)
Add spices, citric acid, & the zests to a pot with 2 cups of water and bring to a boil. Turn down the heat to low andsSimmer for 20 minutes. Sieve through unbleached cheesecloth. Add stevia to taste. Cool. Add 1/4 cup syrup to sparkling water. ENJOY!
NOTE: The trick to this recipe is purchasing high quality spices and not using too much sweetener. You want to use just enough Stevia to compliment the spices rather than overpower them. I buy my spices from a specialty spice shop for this recipe.
