How to Make Simple Syrup

Step-by-Step

  • 1Combine the water and sugar in a medium saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil and let the sugar dissolve. You don't have to stir, but it will help the sugar dissolve faster.
  • 2Remove the syrup from the heat and cool slightly.
  • 3Depending upon what you're using it for, you can flavor the syrup:

    Stir in 1-2 teaspoons of vanilla extract for a basic vanilla syrup.
    Infuse with herbs or spices, if desired; mint and lemon are great for iced tea.
  • 4Transfer the cooled syrup to a lidded container or jar that can be stored in the refrigerator. Simple syrup can be stored for up to one month.
