Simplest of Sugars Syrup

If you enjoy making your favorite espresso drinks or cocktails at home, you'll love this recipe on how to make this homemade simple syrup.
Skip the spoon-full of sugar and go directly to the syrup. This a basic recipe that anyone can master and use for all sorts of things like: cocktails, coffee, lemonade, ice tea… did I mention coffee? I was totally inspired to make some of this syrup when my boyfriend, Jonathan and I went to a small coffee shop (not Starbucks!) in Seattle and instead of the normal sugar packets on the bar, they had a bottle full of simple syrup.

Looking for something simple & sweet? Pin it to save!

It was so simple (pun intended) to pour a bit of the syrup in, swirl with a stick and enjoy. I’m always trying to get the right amount of sugar packets in to make it sweet enough (am I the only one with that problem?) so this is the perfect way to get around that and it’s SO easy!

    My mom makes simple syrup for parties so people can sweeten their tea. The syrup dissolves much better in the drink, and people are always so impressed! Thanks for sharing on Hump Day Happenings : )
