SIMPLE GUIDE TO SIMPLE SYRUP

What is simple syrup?

Simple syrup is commonly used in cocktails; bartenders will use it to give cocktails added sweetness. You can also find flavoured syrups to add extra complexity to your cocktails.

People have a misconception that cocktails are complicated to make. While mixing cocktails is not rocket science, they do require skill that professional cocktail makers spend hours practising to perfect. With the right ingredients, a good recipe and a bit of practice you will be enjoying great cocktails at home in no time.

Simple syrup is relatively easy to make, hence the name. We have an easy way to make your very own simple syrup, just follow the recipe below.
