Burnt Sugar adds a really nice flavor to a cocktail. It puts a caramelly rich sweetness to the cocktail that plain sugar doesn't have. I'm doing some experiments with Burnt Sugar Syrup that is proving to be very interesting. The Burnt Sugar Daiquiri is my favorite so far, but there are so many other possibilities where you can replace simple syrup with burnt sugar syrup to add depth to a cocktail. Give this a try, it is easy to make and really adds to the flavor. Adds a little something to a T-Punch as well.
