How to Make Simple Syrup

Basic simple syrup mixture for beverages, cocktails and glazes.

How to Make Simple Syrup

This is for a medium thick simple syrup with a 2:1 ratio, which will cover most of your beverage needs - such as lemonade, iced tea, cocktails and coffee. You can also do a 1:1 ratio and a 3:1 ratio, depending on the thickness needed. A thicker ratio would be used in baking for glazes. A thinner ratio might be used for some cold drinks.

Microwave Simple Syrup

This is the one I use.  Combine 2 parts sugar with 1 part water in a microwave safe container. Stir together well and microwave on high until boiling, usually about 2-5 minutes, depending on amount. Stir, and return to microwave if needed, and continue boiling until sugar has dissolved and mixture is clear. Do not overboil or you will end up with candy! Stir and set aside to cool at room temperature. Store in refrigerator up to 2 months.


Boiled Simple Syrup

Combine 2 parts sugar with 1 part water in a saucepan and bring to a bring to a boil, stirring constantly and continue boiling until all the sugar dissolves and mixture is clear. Set aside to cool before using. Store in refrigerator up to 2 months.


Infused Simple Syrup

Combine 2 parts sugar with 1 part water and the infusion (such as mint leaves or hot peppers) in a saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly and continue boiling until all the sugar dissolves and mixture is clear. Set aside for about 12 hours, occasionally stirring.
