- 1 part sugar
- 1 part water
Place the sugar and water a pot over medium-high heat.
Stir, until the sugar dissolves.
Remove from heat and store in an airtight container.
If you realize you need a batch at the last minute, you can cool it quickly by pouring it into a plastic or metal bowl. Then, place that bowl into a larger bowl filled with ice water. Stir the syrup, until it cools, about 3 minutes.
I usually make this with ½ cup sugar and a ½ cup water, but you can increase or decrease the batch, as needed.
