2-4tbspsimple syrupcan use more or less. Up to you!
FOR SIMPLE SYRUP
Combine sugar and water in a sauce pot. Bring to a gentle simmer over medium-high heat. Once all of the sugar has dissolved, about 1 minutes, turn the heat off and allow the syrup to come to room temperature.
FOR VANILLA BEAN MILK
Split the vanilla bean lengthwise and using the back of the knife, scrape out all of the seeds. Add the seeds to 1 cup of milk and whisk vigorously to dissolve the seeds. This can also be done with a handheld milk frother.
Combine the mixed vanilla bean milk with the remaining 3 cups of milk and the vanilla bean pod in a large glass pitcher.
Add 2-4 tbsp (or more) of simple syrup and whisk to combine. Allow to steep in the fridge for at least 12 hours.
Enjoy with cookies, make hot chocolate, add to coffee… possibilities are endless.
