Don's Mix = 2 parts white grapefruit juice and 1 part cinnamon syrup.

Don's Spices #2 = 1:1 vanilla syrup and pimento dram

Don's Spices #4 = cinnamon syrup

POM grenadine = cold process grenadine - 1 cup of POM pomegranate juice to 1 cup plus 1-2 ounces granulate white sugar.

Syrups. You need to make sugar based syrups. Or just buy everything. From BG Reynolds like I do. And let him do all the work.

All the Mixes & syrups mentioned are sugar based.
don't use extracts unless you are adding them to a syrup recipe.

The Bum's recommended starting point for cinnamon syrup is 3 crushed cinnamon sticks in a 1:1 simple syrup (1 cup of water and 1 cup of granulated sugar), bring to a boil and simmer a couple of minutes then remove from heat and steep at least 2 hours before straining and bottling. I use the cheap Badia canela cinnamon sticks and they are pretty short sticks so I use 5 of those in my syrup.

Jeff also recommends equal parts dram to vanilla syrup in the Spices #2, but the St. Elizabeth dram is has such a strong and concentrated flavor that I bring it way down — at 1:1 the allspice is overwhelming and at the recommended amounts in published recipes it overwhelms the drink in my opinion. To tell the truth, I don't keep Don's Spices #2 premixed on hand anymore. Instead when a recipe calls for it I sub straight vanilla syrup and then dash an appropriate amount of St. Elizabeth to give me what to my tastes is a balanced drink. Jeff's recommendation on a vanilla syrup is Fee Bros. but I usually just use the Da Vinci syrup you can find in the coffee aisle in the grocery store.

You're in business with the cinnamon, POM and grapefruit juice. I've done cinnamon syrup with white sugar and Demerara and they both turn out good so I think you're set there as well.

Like ATP said, flavor extracts are only going to work if you add them to simple syrup. I do use a bit of bitter almond extract along with fresh blanched almonds when I make orgeat, but I haven't ever tried to use vanilla extract to make a syrup. And as expensive as real vanilla extract is I think you're better off buying vanilla syrup.

I've always wanted to make scratch vanilla syrup until the cost of whole Tahitian vanilla bean pods gave me sticker shock.

Vanilla extract is the super concentrated stuff you cook and bake with. Vanilla syrup is simple syrup flavored with vanilla.

Like I said, I buy commercial vanilla syrup like you'd flavor coffee with (Da Vinci, Torani, etc.), but give the extract plus simple a go and let us know how it works.
