Have you ever tried mixing sugar into a cold drink? The sugar doesn’t dissolve well, and you’re left with a super-sweet pool at the bottom of your drink. That’s where simple syrup comes in. It’s used to sweeten iced coffee, teas, lemonades and cocktails, among many other things. And it’s not called “simple” syrup for nothing. Making it is super easy, and it is a great thing to have on hand for many uses in the kitchen!
