Perfect Drink® recipe

Simple Syrup 2:1

Simple Syrup is very easy to make. There are some choices regarding the sugar.  Super fine sugar will dissolve very easily and is always a good choice for making syrups or adding to cocktails.  Other sugars can bring more flavor complexity like turbinado, muscovado, demerara, or brown sugar.  To help with dissolving large grain sugars you can use warm or hot water.

Seal the jar and shake vigorously for a few seconds then let it set for a few minutes.  Depending on the sugar you use, you may need to shake a few more times until all the sugar is dissolved.
