1 c. water
1/4 c. sugar
1-2 drops red food color

Mix water and sugar. Heat until sugar is dissolved. Add food color and let cool. Pour into your hummingbird feeder and watch the birds drink!

Cooks Note: Some questions exist as to whether red food coloring may be safe for hummingbirds. If you have beet juice (saved from canned beets) available, add a few tablespoons to the water to color it naturally. Otherwise, you can also choose to omit the coloring altogether.
