You can use light or dark brown sugar in this recipe. Dark brown sugar will provide a richer caramel flavor compared to light brown.To use Brown Sugar Syrup instead of the listed brown sugar in this drink, you'll simply combine equal parts brown sugar and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer until the sugar has dissolved and the syrup thickens slightly.This should only take a few minutes. Allow the syrup to cool and pour the syrup into an airtight container. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
