This simple syrup is to be used as an equivalent of a regular sugar-based simple syrup in cocktails, coffee and tea drinks, etc. About Agave: Agave is a natural sweetener used in place of sugar. It has a glycemic index that is 40 percent lower than refined sugar and agave nectar is an optional sweetener for people who are diabetic; the sugars from agave nectar are released slowly into the bloodstream, keeping blood sugar at a more consistent level.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine equal parts agave nectar and hot water and stir to dissolve. Let cool completely before using. Store in the refrigerator between uses for up to one month.

I needed to make simple syrup for a tequila drink and this was perfect, especially since you don't even have to dirty a pan!

Great substitute and much better than the Splenda version. Being diabetic, I like to use simple syrup in lemonade and "virgin" drinks.
