Simple Sugar Syrup

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by That Napa Chicken R

Simple Syrup is little more then a mixture of sugar and water. The sweetness and/or density is a matter of preference. Thin and medium syrup is best for cocktails, while thicker syrup is used for sundaes, fountain drinks and deserts.
