Looking for an easy Simple Syrup recipe?
Well look no further! I’ve been debating for a while about creating a separate section for what I call Bar Essentials – The Odds and Ends of what your home bar needs. I usually include the steps of how to make these ingredients in the Drinks of the Week, but it was getting tedious writing it out over and over. So, the idea for this section was born.
Simple syrup is one of the many essential ingredients to have in your home bar. Many cocktails use it, and you can use it as a sweetener for other drinks like coffee and tea.
Did I mention how ridiculously easy it is to make yet? This easy made simple syrup only has two ingredients and is ready to use in little over an hour. You can make it ahead of time, chill it overnight, and keep it on hand for party cocktails. This homemade simple syrup is super easy to make. Let’s get started, shall we?
