Simple Syrup

Simply syrup is used mostly for drinks like sweet tea or for cocktails. It’s very light, made of 1 part sugar and 1 part water by volume. To make a simple syrup, combine:

1 cup (8 ounces) water
1 cup (7 ounces) sugar

Heat for about three minutes until the sugar is dissolved. Allow it to cool before using.
