Demerara Syrup

Course Side Dish
Prep Time 1 minute
Cook Time 10 minutes
Resting time 15 minutes


  • 1 cup Demerara sugar
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 splash High proof vodka (optional)


  • Add sugar and water into a small pan.
  • The sugar has to dissolve completely to make a smooth Demerara syrup. You will achieve this by bringing it to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer immediately after that and stir the syrup until the sugar dissolved completely.
  • Take it off the heat and let it cool down for a few minutes.
  • Pour it into an airtight container and put it in the fridge. You can store it there for up to a month.
  • To extend the life of the syrup, add a splash of high-proof vodka.
