So how do restaurants make their cocktails so great? It’s simple! Using simple syrup adds sweetness without being overpowering, plus you can infuse the simple syrup with just about any flavor you want. Here’s how I make mine:
General Simple Syrup
2 cups of water
1 ½ cups sugar (raw cane sugar, if you can find it)
In a small saucepan, add water and bring to a boil. Add sugar and stir until dissolved. Let cool.
