Simple syrup is exactly like the name sounds. Simple to make with a very light sweet taste. It is a 1:1 ratio of water and sugar. The ingredients are combined, brought to a boil, and cooled for use.

It makes an appearance in many cocktails like mojitos, and coffee drinks like a caramel macchiatos, and is used in baking. 



  1. In a medium saucepan combine sugar and water.

    Bring to a boil, stirring, until sugar has dissolved.

    Allow to cool.


Add a teaspoon of vanilla extract or your favorite flavoring to spice things up!
