Thanks for the basic recipe. It is one of those things that if you only make it rarely that you forget the proportions!

I have discovered that if you boil the water in a kettle first, then mix the water and sugar, you don't need to cook it for 7 mins (too hot to have the stove on!) Works great.

I vote this the easiest recipe on Zaar! I use this simple syrup for the perfect summertime Mojito (along with fresh mint from my garden). Cheers! Thanks for posting.

This is very good. I even used a sugar substitute (Xylosweet or something like that) and it worked great for another recipe for Whiskey Sours. Thanks for posting!

Went to make a lemon drop martinin and it called for simple syrup. Had no idea what it was then found this recipe. Worked like a charm and soooo easy to make. Now I've a small container sitting in the fridge so I can have a repeat performance - YUM!

I use simple syrup mainly to sweeten iced tea, and brush on loaves after baking. I've seen "gourmet" shops selling simple syrup for $5 a bottle...lol.

The name says it all--simple. I made this to use with Banana Ice Cream. The directions were perfect. Thanks for taking the time to post this recipe.

I used this recipe to make some caramel popcorn when I did not have the corn syrup I needed. It turned out great and I don't think I need to buy corn syrup anymore.
