This is easy to make and a very versatile ingredient that can be used in far more than this one drink. The Simple Syrup we make is a 2:1 ratio of sugar to water. This makes a thicker more stable syrup and allows us to use less per drink. It’s also known as a “Rich Simple” or “bartenders Simple” syrup.
Step 1: Dissolve 2 parts granulated sugar into 1 part water on the stove.
Step 2: Heat and stir until the sugar dissolves.
Step 3: Let cool and store in the refrigerator.
