Simple Syrup

You may have heard about simple syrup in drinks, desserts, coffee!

I love simple syrup its so easy and simple 😉 I make it for my mocktails, or for cocktails if your legal age! I love keeping it in a Glass Syrup Bottle with a Pourer! You can find it here on Amazon! Or a mason jar your choice!

Simple syrup is equal parts water and sugar

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 sugar

If you want a richer taste:

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup water
  1. Add the sugar and water to a small saucepan set over medium heat.
  2. Stir until the sugar is dissolved.
  3. Let cool, then pour into a glass jar and seal tightly with a lid or a pretty jar like I linked above!
  4. Simple syrup will keep, refrigerated, for about one month.

If you wanted to add vanilla to it perfect for old fashions or coffee

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Add water and sugar to a small saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Stir until sugar is dissolved.
  3. Let cool, then stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. Strain into a jar or bottle and seal tightly with a lid

You can make all kind of variations ginger, orange, whatever your in the mood for! perfect for mocktail, cocktails or coffee, desserts, or even a glaze for a cake! simple syrup is one of those recipes you can do a lot with, with something so simple 😉
