For your basic simple syrup recipe, you need two ingredients: water and sugar. The ratio of water to sugar can vary, but we usually stick to equal parts water to sugar. For 1 cup of sugar, we use 1 cup of water. That’s it.
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- Combine water and sugar in a saucepan over medium-high heat.
- Bring the mixture to a boil and stir until the sugar has dissolved in to the water. Cool before using. Store covered in the fridge for 3-4 weeks.
