The uses for simple syrup are endless. In fact, you will probably invent new uses once you read how to make it. Take notes, because this is complex:
- Combine equal parts sugar and water in a pot.
- Heat over medium high heat, stirring occasionally until of syrup consistency.
Yep, that’s it. You can make fancy simple syrups by adding a flavoring component like mint, or even an herb like rosemary, just make sure to strain the herb before adding the syrup to your beverage.
You can use simple syrup to sweeten homemade lemonade, iced tea, cocktails, homemade sodas, even to make flavored syrup for pancake or waffles.
Have fun inventing!
