Nectar Syrup


Nectar soda is an old New Orleans flavor. This recipe for the syrup was printed in the Times-Picayune newspaper in the 1950s or 1960s. You can use it to make snowballs, combine it with club soda, or pour it over ice cream. Or use your imagination!


  1. Fill a quart container with granulated sugar. Add water to fill container. Shake or stir to dissolve the sugar.
  2. Add a teaspoon of pure almond extract, then add one tablespoon pure vanilla extract.
  3. Color with red food coloring.
