Learn how to make a quick and easy Simple Syrup, perfect for coffee or any other beverage!
I have to be honest. I had no idea simple syrup even existed since last year! Here in Brazil you don’t find it in stores, probably because nobody ever uses it. And I don’t know a single person here who makes it at home. But since our trip to New England last year we fell in love with it. Most coffee shops we went to had the option of simple syrup and regular sugar, so we started giving the syrup a try, and we just couldn’t stop using it!
So when we got home from that trip we started making our own simple syrup to use on coffee and iced tea! It’s so easy to make and you can store it in the fridge for a long time.
The recipe? Just place equal parts of water and sugar in a microwave safe container (we use 1/2 cup of each). Mix it and microwave it for around two and a half minutes.
