I would like to flavor this syrup. Would 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract be a good amount for this recipe?

Hi Scott, you most certainly can flavor the syrup with Vanilla. Use a good quality pure vanilla extract. Add 1/2 teaspoon of the extract, taste, then add more for a stronger flavor. It would depend on what you are planning to use the syrup for. If using to make cocktails, it is best to not add any flavor that will overpower the flavor of the drink, unless vanilla is the flavor of the cocktail!
