Lemon Syrup Recipe

This quick, and easy lemon syrup recipe is tremendously popular. The lemon syrup is a lemon-infused syrup that adds a myriad of flavors to anything it's stirred into or drizzled over.


It's ridiculously easy to make and it adds both sweetness and a lemony kick to cocktails and desserts. When we think syrup we usually think sweet, but who would have thought lemon syrup can taste this good?


lemon Syrup compliments anything from pancakes to waffles and can be used as a base for lemonade and lemon cocktails. It freezes well and can last in the fridge for a long time. The chances are you will use most of the lemon syrup before it has time to go bad.
