Sugar syrup is an essential ingredient when making a number of cocktails. It is also commonly known as Simple Syrup. Follow the directions for a consistent syrup.
Below we’ve put together a 1:1 sugar syrup with white sugar. You can also use other sugars such as raw, brown and demerara which have different flavours and sweetness – these pair nicely with brown spirits such as whiskey and rum.
The key to making the right consistency is weighing your ingredients just like any other recipe.
