4 Dashes     Cinnamon bitters
Canfield’s Chocolate Fudge soda

*Scorched Sugar Syrup

¼ c white sugar
1/3 c water

Directions

Place ¼ cup white sugar in a saucepan over medium-high heat.Let the sugar start to melt, then smoke, and when the first bubble of black scorched sugar pops at the surface, remove from heat

Immediately add 1/3 cup of water… CAREFULLY. This is a pan that is around 400 degrees with melted syrup in it. The water will immediately evaporate, which means this is a violent reaction. Wear whatever safety gear you consider appropriate. This is dangerous… and totally worth it.

Keep stirring to combine and deglaze the saucepan of the carbonized carbohydrates and let stand over low heat until all crystallized sugar has combined with the water.

Will keep for 6 days.
