This Simple Syrup is an absolute staple in any Southern refrigerator. We use it to mix into our favorite cocktails or stir into our classic sweet tea recipe. If you’ve ever made an Old Fashioned, you know the addition of simple syrup is a must. We also love to infuse our Simple Syrup with fresh herbs like mint for the warmer months and rosemary for the winter and fall. You can even infuse it with your favorite flavor of citrus, whether lemon, orange, or even grapefruit. Just add a few peels to your saucepan right after removing it from the heat for a subtle flavor. We guarantee, just a hint will take your simple syrup up a notch. Chances are, you’ll be asked to spill your secret as the light herbal notes might not be strong enough to pinpoint. If you’re planning a party, make up a double batch and put it in a small glass pitcher with a label, making it easy for guests to add to their highball glasses. Our Simple Syrup will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. It’s incredibly easy to make, so we venture to guess you’re going to be filing this one in the “most popular” section of your recipe book. Trust us, this is going to be your new secret weapon.
