Simple Syrup

Since I'm about to begin my journey into cocktail wonderland, I thought we'd start with a very basic staple: simple syrup. It's incredibly quick and easy to make and can last you up to a month. Here's what you'll need:

Simple Syrup

1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup water

Place both ingredients in a small sauce pan and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.

Bring heat to low and let simmer until all the sugar has dissolved completely (about 3 minutes). Cool completely before using. (Simple syrup can be stored for up to 1 month in a glass jar.)
