Agave Water
Agave syrup is a great sweetener that can be used as a sugar substitute.
The taste goes particularly well with tequila and mescal.

2 parts agave syrup
1 part water

Place 2 volumes, for example 2 tablespoons, of agave syrup and 1 volume (1 tablespoon) of water in a small bowl or jug and stir until the syrup dissolves.
