This homemade Vanilla Syrup is the perfect addition to your coffee, iced latte, and cocktails! You will only need 3 ingredients and a few minutes to make it.
So this time, I’ve made my own super easy, homemade Vanilla Syrup.
What I love about this vanilla syrup is that
- you only need three ingredients
- you only need 10 minutes
- and it stores forever in the fridge
I’ve been adding it to my iced lattes and it’s such a good addition! Usually, I just add maple syrup to sweeten the iced lattes, but this vanilla syrup easily brings my iced-latte game to the next level! I add about 1-2 teaspoons of syrup.
It’s also a really easy way to wow your friends if you’re having them over for a cocktail night ;) My favorite cocktail with this vanilla syrup is this Gin Basil Smash right now. For cocktails, I add about 1 tablespoon of syrup.
How to make Vanilla Syrup
The Ingredients & possible substitutes
You’ll only need a handful of ingredients:
- whole vanilla beans – you can also use ground vanilla beans (1 tablespoon) or vanilla extract (1 tablespoon)
- sugar – I am using white sugar but can also use dextrose (for a low fructose version) or brown sugar.
The Basic Steps
As always you can find the whole recipe below in the box. I want to show you the basic steps first, though.

Homemade Vanilla Syrup
- 2 whole vanilla beans
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup water
- Slice open the vanilla beans and scrape out the vanilla seeds.
- Add the vanilla beans, vanilla seeds, sugar, and water into a pot.
- Bring the water to a boil, then let it simmer (no lid on) for 5-10 minutes. The sugar should have dissolved by now. The syrup will thicken in the fridge even more.
- Pour the mixture through a nut milk bag if you want to get rid of the speckles or if you want to keep them you can pour it through a strainer. Then you can fill the syrup into a bottle and store it in the fridge forever.
