  • 3 cups Wine of your choice
  • 3 cups Sugar

How to Make:

  1. To make wine syrup, you can use an assortment of wines.
  2. In a wide saucepan or skillet, combine the wine with sugar (a good ratio is 3 cups wine to 1 cup sugar)
  3. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat.
  4. Simmer until syrupy and reduced to about a third of the volume.
  5. Let cool, bottle, and refrigerate.

You can also simmer the wine with flavorings, such as fresh ginger, cinnamon sticks, cloves, rosemary, black peppercorns, vanilla bean, or herbs of your choice. Just strain them out after cooling the syrup.

The syrup is sweet and a bit tangy, so there are countless uses for it.
