Simple Simple Syrup

Don't you hate it when you have an iced drink and the sugar doesn't dissolve in it like it does in a hot drink? That is where simple syrup comes in! Simple syrup is another term for sugar water, because that's what it really is: sugar and water. Making this is really easy too.

You will need:
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup water
Heat up a small sauce pan with the water until it starts to bubble. Add in the sugar and swirl/or whisk it so the sugar doesn't sink to the bottom. Keep watch because it'll heat up really quickly due to the small amount of water. The water will thicken up and if you get a spoonful of it, you can't see any sugar crystals. Once it dissolves completely pour the simple syrup into a squeeze bottle and refrigerate until needed!

You can't see it but the bottle is full of simple syrup. Simple solution to sweeten an iced drink. :)
