Recipe for making simple sugar syrup sirop simple, at home.

Simple syrup, or sugar syrup, is a basic sweetener in beverages. For regular simple sugar syrup, combine equal parts sugar and water. For a ‘rich’ simple syrup, combine two parts sugar to one part water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer for 2-3 minutes until the solids have dissolved. Let cool to room temperature and transfer to a squeeze bottle or other sealed container. Keeps, refrigerated, for at least a week.

For more flavorful cocktail syrups, try using Demerara,/em> Turbinado, or Muscovado sugar.

This syrup is used in recipes for Punch Latier (Escoffier, 908), and Bavaroise (Escoffier, 4995).
