How to make simple syrup

Can I make my own cocktail simple syrup? Yes, it is super easy to make with sugar and water.

Use equal parts of sugar and water.

  • 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water
  • Combine the water and the sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and simmer, stirring, until the sugar has completely dissolved and the syrup has thickened about 5 minutes.
  • Cool completely.
  • Use in all your cocktails and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one month.
* To make a smaller batch of simple syrup use a lesser portion of sugar and water. Just make sure they are equal.

Can I puree the watermelon?

Yes! If you prefer to puree the watermelon instead of muddling you may do so. Place cubed watermelon in the blend, and pulse a few times until smooth. Use a few ounces in each drink.
