Recipe Notes

Raw sugar can be very hard to dissolve in liquid, even when it’s hot. If you are going to be using the sugar in drinks primarily, I would suggest using regular sugar. I grind mine in a mortar and pestle to make it easier to dissolve if I’ll be using it in drinks. You can also put it in a high-speed blender and pulse until the grains are finer.
