Basic Simple Syrup
Measure 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water.
Combine the sugar and water in a small to a medium saucepan.
Heat the sugar and water until it comes to a soft boil until the sugar has melted. This happens quickly.
Once it’s melted, remove from the heat and let it cool to room temperature.
Store it in an airtight glass jar.
Infused Simple Syrup
If you're making infused syrups, add the ingredients in with the sugar and water.
Bring to a soft boil, then let it simmer for a few minutes.
Remove from heat and allow the mixture to cool and infuse for 25 minutes to 1 hour. You can even leave this overnight.
Strain the mixture through a mesh strainer.
For a richer syrup use the 2:1 ratio.
To infuse syrups use fresh berries, herbs, and whole spices.
The syrup will last 3 weeks stored in the refrigerator.
If you're looking for different sugar substitutions try coconut sugar, maple syrup honey, agave, or stevia.
