things taste better when they’re pretty!

even your refrigerator can be pretty! wine isn’t the only liquid you can decanter, really anything can be put into a glass container to make it more pleasant to the eye. it’s hot here in florida so I keep coffee in the fridge for my hubby to easily make iced coffee in the morning (here’s a tip, make coffee ice cubes too, it doesn’t water down your coffee!) and cold espresso for me to make iced lattes for myself. the tall glass bottles are from ikea, you can get them here and the large half-gallon glass jugs are from red hill general store and are the best value I could find online. the small chalkboard labels are great for changing whats inside as well as reminding yourself of the expiration date. ne sure to sterilize in the dishwasher, hand washing may result in your milk spoiling. don’t ask me why, it just will. need the recipe for simple syrup? it’s so SIMPLE! haha I crack myself up. but seriously put 2 cups of sugar to 1 1/2 cups water in a small saucepan, bring to a boil until sugar dissolves, let cool and voila! you can also infuse it with a vanilla bean, citrus or really anything your heart desires, not only is it great for coffee but its a bartenders best friend!
