Simple syrups are the base of most of the flavored syrups. We have created two versions; this one is a true simple syrup, meaning that it is equal parts sugar to water, while the second is a bit less concentrated. They take little time to prepare, and are good to have on hand to sweeten cold beverages such as iced coffee and tea. This version is perfect for mixing into cocktails, for it cuts the bite of the alcohol a bit better than the lighter version.

Simple Syrup (Version 1 – heavy)
INGREDIENTS

2 cups granulated sugar 2 cups water

Instructions

1. Put both the sugar and water into a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil. Once it boils, reduce heat to medium to allow mixture to simmer until the sugar has completely dissolved. Stir occasionally. 2. Remove the saucepan from the heat and allow to cool completely before using. Syrup can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a month.
