Basic Simple Syrup Recipe:

Determine which type of Simple Syrup you want to make. See Types of Simple Syrup above.

In a high-sided saucepan over medium-high heat, bring cold water and sugar to a boil.

Turn the heat to low and stir constantly until the sugar dissolves completely and the mixture is clear, approximately 3 minutes. Remember - the longer you boil it, the thicker the syrup will be when cooled.

Optional: At this point you can add flavorings (you can steep almost anything into your simple syrup such as extracts, fruit juices, herbs, spices, and liqueurs). Just put them in once the water boils right before adding the sugar, and strain them out before bottling.

After boiling, let the syrup cool to room temperature, then pour into a tightly sealed, clean glass jar and store in the refrigerator (Any clean and sealable container can be used). The syrup can be refrigerated for up to 1 month. You can also stir in 1 tablespoon corn syrup to help ensure the syrup stays smooth.
