Simple Syrup….Your Summer Cocktail’s Best Friend
Simple syrup is a mainstay in my kitchen in the summer. I store mine in a mason jar in my refrigerator. You can store it in your refrigerator tightly sealed for up to 3 months.(mine never lasts that long, I use it up quick!) It is perfect for a quick Mojito or my killer fresh Margarita. I’ll share that drink next time I make it ..which I’m sure will be soon.
It’s basic and simple..hence the name simple syrup…
2 parts sugar
1 part water
Bring the water to a boil. Pour in the sugar and stir constantly until dissolved. When all of the sugar has dissolved remove the syrup from the heat. It will thicken a bit as it cools. When cool, place the syrup in a mason jar, put the lid on and it’s ready anytime you’re ready for that refreshing summer drink!
