  • Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, then lower heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved, about 1-2 minutes.
  • Pour syrup into a heat proof container and allow to cool.


Storage: Store the simple syrup covered in the refrigerator or at room temperature for up to one month. Make sure the container is very clean to avoid contamination. If possible, rinse with boiling water before filling.
