Simple Syrup

Simple syrups are super easy to make! Mix all ingredients in a saucepan over medium/low heat until all of the sugar is dissolved. Turn heat down to low and simmer for 5 minutes. Turn off heat and let cool. The longer you let the syrup sit with all the ingredients, the strong it will be! Once cooled, strain and place in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. Check out these simple syrup recipes if you want to try something a little more interesting!
