Simple syrup is a common ingredient in cocktails. You can buy it in the store but did you know you can just make it at home?
What you need:
– 1/2 cup granulated sugar (plain beet sugar, Demerara, cane sugar or Turbinado will work just fine)
– 1/2 cup water.
– 1 resealable container
– 1 stovetop pan
– 1 stirring utensil
I put the stove at medium heat and add the water and sugar in the pan.
Then I stir until the sugar is dissolved fully.
Tada! That’s it!
Then I funnel the syrup into the container and put in the fridge for 20 minutes before adding it to a cocktail. And you can store it around a month in the fridge.
Pro tips: add some cinnamon for cinnamon simple syrup. Or you could use honey instead of sugar for honey syrup. Many possibilities…
