This warming brown sugar spiced simple syrup is perfect for your next cozy beverage. It goes well in bourbon cocktails, lattes, tea or drizzled on pancakes!


  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 5 sprigs of rosemary
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 tbsp whole cloves


  1. Add all ingredients to a small sauce pan.
  2. Heat the mixture over medium-low heat. Stir well until all of the brown sugar dissolves. Do not boil the simple syrup. 
  3. Remove from heat and let the flavors infuse for 15 minutes up to 1 hour. Remove the larger spices with tongs or a fork.
  4. Strain into a jar. Enjoy!


  • Make sure to pack the brown sugar into the measuring cup.
  • Use filtered water for higher quality simple syrup.
  • Do not use the simple syrup while hot (unless it is for a hot drink). Let it cool to room temperature so it will not dilute the ice in a cocktail.
