How to Make Simple Syrup

Simple syrup recipes are pretty much all the same and they are so easy to make. You just boil sugar and water, and then add whatever flavors you want the syrup to be.

First, you are going to make the simple syrup. This recipe makes more than what you need for just one drink.

  1. Boil water and sugar. In a small pot, combine water and sugar over medium heat. Once it begins to boil, reduce heat to low and cook for 10 minutes.
  2. Add flavors. Add cantaloupe, mint, and cucumber and stir. Let them steep in the syrup until cool.
  3. Strain. Pour mixture over a fine-mesh sieve, over a cup or bowl. Use a spoon to press against cantaloupe, cucumber and mint against the side, to get that flavor out! Discard anything that doesn’t go through the sieve.

You only need 1/3 cup of simple syrup per drink, so pour the rest in a mason jar and store in the fridge.
