DIY Gomme Syrup

A little extra effort to make gomme instead of simple syrup will give your cocktails a silky texture you can't get from plain simple syrup.

Notes: Gum Arabic is also known as Acacia gum or mesca. Some baking specialty stores or natural food stores carry it. You can also order it from Amazon. Be sure to buy food-grade gum.
Adding one tablespoon of vodka to the mixture before storing will extend the life of your syrup for another month or more.
