Make Your Own Flavored Coffee Syrups

Probably one of the coolest coffee creation recipes yet -- again, big thanks to Christi for sending this in. If you want to whip up gourmet coffee creations at home, creating your own flavor syrups is the way to start.

2 cups water
2 cups sugar
your favorite flavored extracts -- to taste

These are popular to flavor coffee and latte.In a heavy saucepan, stir sugar and water over medium heat, until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil and boil for one minute. Add flavorings to taste. Pour into a pretty bottle and label. Store refrigerated.Some favorite combinations: Vanilla and Almond, Hazelnut, Vanilla and Orange.
