Simple syrup is a liquid sweetener that is used to sweeten beverages such as cocktails, lemonade, or coffee drinks. I made a little video showing you the process of how to make, store, and infuse simple syrup!
A printable recipe can be found at the end of this post. Enjoy!
yield: 3 cups
- 2 cups water
- 2 cups sugar
- Combine the water and sugar in a saucepan and bring to a simmer, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Once it comes to a boil, remove the mixture from the heat and allow to cool before using.
- Alternatively, you can combine the sugar and water in a container and allow it to sit at room temperature for several hours, stirring the mixture every so often. The sugar will eventually dissolve.
- Simple sugar keeps indefinitely when refrigerated.
For variations, try steeping aromatics in the syrup such as mint, lemon peel, vanilla beans, cinnamon sticks, orange peel, or anything that sounds delicious!
