How to make simple syrup - the perfect addition to cocktails like margaritas and mojitos

Let’s get back to basics. You know my philosophy, it’s often easier to make things from scratch than purchase in store. Simple syrup is just that – simple. Made of nothing but water and sugar, it’s so quick and easy to make. I often make simple syrup for margaritas, mojitos, and signature drinks. Make a large batch and store it in your refrigerator or just enough for a few cocktails, the choice is yours!
