In my opinion, every home cook should know how to make simple syrup. Luckily, it couldn’t be simpler ;)

One part sugar to one part water. Boil until dissolved and let cool. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 months. Done!

I make a big batch at the beginning of June and use it all summer long to sweeten alcoholic drinks, iced teas, and lemonade.
