Simple Syrup

Simple syrup is a mixture of granulated sugar and water that is heated until the sugar dissolves, creating a syrupy liquid. The ratio of sugar to water can vary, but a common ratio is equal parts sugar and water. Simple syrup is commonly used as a sweetener in cocktails and other beverages because it dissolves easily and blends well with other ingredients. It can also be used as a base for flavored syrups by adding ingredients such as herbs, fruits, or spices during the heating process.


  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water


  1. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and water.
  2. Heat the mixture over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  3. Remove the saucepan from the heat and allow the simple syrup to cool completely.
  4. Once cooled, transfer the simple syrup to a jar or bottle and store in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.

Note: For flavored simple syrup, add herbs, fruits or spices to the mixture while heating and remove them once the sugar is dissolved.
