How To Make Simple Syrup
Summer is coming which means we’ll be making up lots of ice tea and lemonade. We’ll also be entertaining a lot which means cocktails! There are many ways to sweeten your favorite drinks but one of the best ways is using simple syrup.
I use this syrup to brush on cake layers for extra moisture. I just flavor it to taste with whatever – whiskey, vanilla, almond, liqueur – whatever! I store mine in the refrigerator since it seems to get moldy if left out.
Simple syrup contains sugar and water that have been cooked together so the sugar is dissolved. If you are looking for a more homemade sweetener for your beverages this summer this is your recipe… Check it out.
