How to Make Simple Syrup

Simple syrup is so easy to make at home. Equal parts sugar and water and you have a sweet syrup to add to any drink or cocktail of choice!


  • 1 Cup Water
  • 1 Cup Sugar


  1. In a medium-size saucepan, add the water and sugar. Turn on medium heat.
  2. Bring to a low boil and let cook for 10 minutes. It will reduce down to a thick syrup over that time. Stir at the beginning to help dissolve the sugar.
  3. Once the time is up, remove from the heat and pour into a mason jar or airtight container (if not glass let it cool first).
  4. Store in the fridge and use in any drink or cocktail that needs to be sweetened.
