Creamy and spiced, this tropical syrup is great for cocktails and side dishes like rice and salads.



Ingredients

Notes

*Canned coconut milk will cause syrup to separate when stored, so shake syrup to combine before using. Or substitute the 1/2 cup canned coconut milk and 1/2 cup water with 1 cup coconut milk beverage brand, like Silk or So Delicious. Also, 1/2 cup roughly crushed lime leaves is a small handful, about 1/8 oz. To double this recipe, you'll need 1/4 oz. lime leaves.

Directions

Whisk sugar, coconut milk and water together in a small saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring to make sure sugar dissolves, and cook for 1 to 2 min. Remove from heat and add lime leaves and and star anise. Cover and allow mixture to steep until room temperature, about 20 min. Strain and store in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Use within 2 weeks.

Serving Suggestions

Mix 1 Tbsp. syrup with 8 oz. club soda, seltzer water or sparkling wine. Piña & Lime Colada, Sake Sparkler or Coconut-Lime Cucumber Salsa recipes.

"My spice shipment just arrived. Oh my gosh! Your spice blends are nuts! I could sit and eat them out of the jar with a spoon! I have been put on a extremely low sodium diet and am allergic to garlic, so my past enjoyment of cooking had disappeared into bland, boring, plain dishes. I had begun to dread mealtime. There just isn't much out there in the non-salt spice blend category to inspire me. Not anymore! Just WOW!"
