Whats your simple syrup recipe?

Recommended Posts

This is seasonal, but I use a 1.5 to 1 ratio and place 5 or 6 fresh fig leaves on top and cover. Make sure leaf stems are removed and leaves washed. Let steep for 8 to 10 Minutes.

I use honey on a 1 : 1 ratio. I like it much better than the standard granulated sugar mixture. I have a favorite cocktail, Borbon Y Abejas, that I use it in. It’s very similar to an Old Fashion.

Simple syrup recipe? 1:1. 
 

Or just add Grand Mariner Cuvée Du Centenaire instead.

I make it on a drink by drink basis, 1:1.

 

My son tried to make a pint or so for me, and store it in the refrigerator. It became moldy pretty quickly. And I really have no ongoing use for a pint of simple syrup.

Add a little splash of vodka and it will keep for a few months.

Sometimes these things just pop in your head and you have to say them before your common sense takes over.

It is also quite true. Everclear works perfectly well as a preservative for simple syrups or other syrups if you happen to have it on hand.
