As any bartender will tell you, you always need a bottle of simple syrup in the cupboard. It has so many uses: southern sweet iced tea, iced coffee, lime spritzer and more. I make a litre of this at a time and store it in sterilised Kilner bottles so that I am always ready to whip up delicious alternatives to fizzy drinks.
- 1 kilo sugar caster
- 1 litre water
- Sterlise your Kilner bottles
- In a saucepan, combine sugar and water.
- Bring to simmer and simmer for 5 minutes to thicken.
- Pour into bottles and store for up to three months.
