Gomme syrup is an ingredient commonly used in mixed drinks. Like bar syrups, it is a sugar and water mixture, but has an added ingredient of Gum arabic which acts as an emulsifier. Gomme syrup is made with the highest percentage of sugar to water possible, while the gum arabic prevents the sugar from crystallizing and adds a smooth texture.

To make gomme syrup, bring sugar and water to a boil, then add gum powder dissolved in water. Strain for use.
