How-To: DIY Simple Syrup for Cocktails & Mocktails

I wanted to do a separate post to share the recipe for Simple Syrup, since it’s such a bartending must-have.  This way, every time I post a cocktail or mocktail recipe, I can just point you right here rather than having to write it out each time.

How To Make Simple Syrup:

  1. Put equal parts water and sugar (real sugar, people – not any of that Splenda nonsense) in a pan.
  2. Bring to a simmer and stir until the sugar is dissolved, leaving you with a light syrupy liquid.
  3. Pour the syrup into a clean jar or small airtight container and store  in the refrigerator.
  4. The Simple Syrup will remain fresh for one week.

Voila! It’s that easy.

    An interesting holiday variation, depending on what drinks you’re planning to make, is to add a cinnamon stick. Extra yum!
