Citrus Infused Sugar

Plain cane sugar can be boring... Spice up some things? Yeah?

The citrus smells just brings so much joy to the nose, it's just so.. Fresh. Citrusy I guess, if that's an actual adjective.

Stir a teaspoon of this into your favorite cup of tea and voila, you literally have a cup of heaven.

The best part is, it took five minutes to make this and after, your hands just smell like orange all day. How great is that?

Citrus Sugar:

1 teaspoon of any citrus zest

1 cup of granulated sugar

Mix the zest with the sugar and use a large knife to scrape the sugar and zest in a back and forth motion until the sugar turns into a slight orange color.

You'll also know when it's mixed when everything smells like citrus fruits, mmm. 

Maybe put it in a jar with a pretty ribbon? 

Send em out as darling little gifts to your tea party gals or if you're studying for a test, mix it with your tea or sprinkle on top of some fruit.
