YIELD: 1¼ CUPS
It may just be sugar and water, but keeping a jar of simple syrup around will make for effortless cocktails, mocktails, coffee drinks, and more! This lasts indefinitely if stored in the fridge. If it begins to crystallize, simply warm again over the stove until once again dissolved.
- Over medium heat in a small saucepan, warm the ingredients just until the sugar has dissolved completely and the mixture turns from cloudy to mostly clear. Remove from heat before it reaches a boil. Let cool completely. Use as needed in recipes requiring simple syrup. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 weeks.
