  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 dried chipotle chile

To Prepare

  • In a small pot over medium heat, bring the sugar, water and chipotle to a boil. Stir until the sugar dissolves, then take off the heat. Pour into a heat-proof container and let cool.
  • Once cool, you may cover tightly and store in the refrigerator. Make it at least 48 hours ahead of time and if you can, a week ahead. It can store in the refrigerator for months. The more it sits, the more flavor it will have.

      Hola Bregetta! I use this syrup to make a cocktail from Oaxaca, here is the recipe for you: Also you can add it to your marinate for chicken or fish and it will make it really flavorful 😉

    Looked absolutely delicious and refreshing! This I must try.
    Pati is warm, ingratiating, and one feels they have been her friend for life!
