I work at the Savory Spice Shop in Franklin, Tn. I fell in love with our Urfa Chili's a few weeks ago and have used them in everything since. I loved this syrup! I am also a fan of cardamom, so it was perfect for me. I do recommend straining the syrup. It takes a few minutes but gives the syrup a nice color. I used a strainer with a coffee filter placed in it and just let it rest for about 20 mins. I made a cocktail of 2 oz. vodka, 2 tsps. syrup and soda. It was wonderful. Very light and refreshing. Perfect for a summer day but the slight heat of the Urfa's (I can't sing their praises enough) just adds the perfect touch.
