We’re back! After some relaxing in Key West, we are very excited to share with you this week’s Tuesday Two Minute Tutorial: How to make Simple Syrup. Spring is in the air and we are ready for cocktails! Simple Syrup is an ingredient in so many of our favorites, but we can’t figure out why so many people buy it in the store. Not only is it very inexpensive and quick to make, simple syrup can be stored easily in your fridge. And the best part? You will only need equal parts of sugar and water! Simply heat on the stove until the sugar has dissolved, then store in a Mason jar. Watch the video below and you will be making mint juleps and mojitos in no time!
