Simple Syrup Barbados

Spread the love

Simple syrup in Barbados is used for most Bajan recipes, it’s so easy to make, I have a recipe here for you. Try using it to make the traditional Bajan Rum Punch and many other cocktails.

I always use quality ingredients to make Simple Syrup. The key is to use more raw sugars. Try using raw organic Bajan cane sugar or honey if you want the other flavors of your simple syrup to shine through.

Use simple syrup and the right ratio for your natural juices like Passion fruit drink, Sorrel, Soursop and many more recipes including cake. We have the recipes for those drinks here also, recipes the Bajan way.


1 cup of sugar
1 cup of water


In a saucepan combine the sugar and water.

Bring to a boil while stirring, until sugar has dissolved.

Allow to cool.
