This simple syrup is to be used as an equivalent of a regular sugar-based simple syrup in cocktails, coffee and tea drinks, etc. About Agave: Agave is a natural sweetener used in place of sugar. It has a glycemic index that is 40 percent lower than refined sugar and agave nectar is an optional sweetener for people who are diabetic; the sugars from agave nectar are released slowly into the bloodstream, keeping blood sugar at a more consistent level.
- Combine equal parts agave nectar and hot water and stir to dissolve. Let cool completely before using. Store in the refrigerator between uses for up to one month.
I needed to make simple syrup for a tequila drink and this was perfect, especially since you don't even have to dirty a pan!
Great substitute and much better than the Splenda version. Being diabetic, I like to use simple syrup in lemonade and "virgin" drinks.
