Simple Syrup

Dear Boys,

This may be the shortest post on this blog, but the recipe is for Simple Syrup after all, so I guess it’s okay.

If you leave the South and order iced tea, you’ll most likely be given unsweetened tea with a pack or two of sugar.  It just doesn’t work.  You can’t get the sugar to dissolve in a cold beverage.

Simple syrup takes care of that problem.

If you want to sweeten your iced coffee, this is the thing to use.


The sugar/water ratio is 1:1.

I used 1 cup of sugar


and 1 cup of water.

Heat these in a saucepan until the sugar has dissolved.


Let it cool a bit and store in a covered container in the refrigerator.

I mentioned coffee and tea but have also used it in lemonade.
