Copycat Starbucks Vanilla Syrup

2 cups water
2 cups granulated sugar
2 tablespoons vanilla extract

1.Combine the water and sugar in a saucepan.
2.Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer for about 3 minutes. Stir.
3.Remove from heat and add the vanilla extract, and stir.
4.Allow the syrup to cool, then refrigerate the syrup in a tightly closed jar for up to a month.

Feel free to experiment! Try replacing some or all of the granulated sugar with brown sugar or raw sugar for a bit of a caramel flavor, or replace the vanilla extract with another extract like hazelnut, almond, mint, Irish creme, orange, rum or raspberry.
