Simple syrup, or sugar syrup, is very easy to make and is used in many cocktails such as Jell-O Shots, Daiquiris and Hurricanes to add volume and sweetness. With this recipe you can make as small or as large a batch as you wish and store it in the refrigerator in a well sealed bottle indefinitely. INGREDIENTS: 2 parts sugar 1 part water PREPARATION: Bring the water to a boil. Dissolve the sugar into the boiling water. Once the sugar is dissolved completely, remove the pan from the heat. Allow to cool completely and bottle. What I like to do is add a few drops of vanilla flavoring to the pan when I add the sugar. You can also use whatever flavoring you desire. This is a very simple recipe. Does anyone else have any easy recipes to share, preferably for beverages?

It is so simple yet very useful to dilute the alchoholic drinks. Same way I make Ginger lemon syrup, which is very refershing in the summer hot. Thanks for sharing. Cheers.....
