This is a basic syrup that can be used to make drinks, granitas, baked goods, etc. I like to pour a little in a glass and add club soda and ice! I found this in Southern Living magazine..
- Bring sugar and water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Boil, stirring often, about 1 minute or until the sugar is dissolved.

- Remove basil and discard. Enjoy!
- Note: To make mint syrup, use mint in place of basil.
