*Simple syrup is just sugar and water boiled together. It is used as an alternative to just adding sugar into cocktails as it is easier to add a liquid than it is to add sugar directly, because the granules don’t need to dissolve.
Basic Simple Syrup Recipe:
Ingredients: One part cold water to one part granulated sugar.
Preparation: In a saucepan over medium-high heat, bring cold water and sugar to a boil.
Turn the heat to low and stir constantly until the sugar dissolves completely and the mixture is clear, approximately 3 to 5 minutes. Remember – the longer you boil it, the thicker the syrup will be when cooled.
To test if the sugar is completely dissolved: Using a spoon, scoop up a small amount of the syrup. You should not be able to see any sugar crystals in the liquid. If you do, boil a little longer.
After boiling, let the syrup cool to room temperature, then pour into a tightly sealed, clean glass jar and store in the fridge.
