What is Simple Syrup?



Simple Syrup can be called a sweetener to make the drinks sweet. With this regard, Simple syrup is nothing more than sugar dissolved in water. It can be easily bought from any liquor store or can be prepared at home as well.

The drinks in which Simple Syrup is commonly used in are mojitos and martinis. It is also used in other mixed drinks and cocktails.

One important function of Simple Syrup is to prevent the drink sweetener from settling at the bottom of the glass.

If you want to make Simple Syrup at home, you just need to take sugar and water in equal amounts and shake the two until the sugar is fully dissolved into the water.

Shake it for 3 minutes and let it rest for a minute, and then again shake for half a minute. Making it will be easy if you use superfine sugar instead of table sugar.

Some like to have their Simple Syrup rich, and for that, they just increase the proportion of sugar in the solution. And if you want flavored syrup, use raw, brown sugar.

Simple syrup is an ingredient common in all types of drinks / beverages including mocktails, cocktails and iced- tea.

You can simply make it at home by doing this :-
In a small saucepan, bring sugar and water to a boil; simmer until the sugar is dissolved, 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool completely.

The best part of home made simple syrup is that if it is once sealed and refrigerated, it can live for a month or more.
