Simple Syrup Recipe

Granulated sugar does not dissolve easily in cold beverages. Simple syrup makes it easy to add sweetness to drinks. You can make simple syrup easily and keep it on hand, or you can buy organic cane syrup in natural food stores.

  • FILL. Using the proportion of 2 parts sugar to three parts water, fill a bottle almost halfway with sugar; add hot water.
  • SHAKE. Cover the top and shake well. This is the easy technique. Some recipes stir the sugar into simmering water over on a stovetop.
  • FLAVOR. Add optional flavor (in this case, cinnamon) to taste. For vanilla simple syrup, add 1-1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract to cooled sugar syrup. If you want to infuse fresh herbs (basil, mint, rosemary), simmer it in hot water for 20 minutes and remove before mixing the water with the sugar.
  • STORE. Store in a cool, dry place.
