Simple Syrup

Simple Syrup Sugar Solution Recipes

Simple Syrup is simply sugar diluted into water. Warm water will melt the sugar much easier and faster than cold water, but really the final product needs to be liquid. Simple Syrup is added to cocktails in its liquid form so it combines the sweetness completely with the other elements in the drink. Simple Syrup does not have to be just sugar and water, Simple Syrup can be flavored with almost anythingfrom herbs to fruit or spicy. Yo0u just add your flavor to the Simple Syrup, let it steep for a day or longer. Strain out any solids and your ready to pour. It is easier to flavor the water first then add the sugar.

Berry shrub

*On four quarts of berries pour white vinegar enough to barely cover them. Let them stand for forty-eight hours, then drain off the vinegar, squeezing the juice out of all the fruit with the vinegar. If strawberries are used, the vinegar must be poured over a second supply of fruit before it will attain the proper flavour; but one supply of raspberries is sufficient. Measure out the liquor when it is ready, and to every pint allow a pound of sugar. Put it in a porcelain-lined kettle with the sugar and let it boil for ten minutes, then bottle it and set away in a cool place. A cupful of this syrup is sufficient to flavour a quart of ice water
