Rich Simple Syrup

Rich simple syrup is also known as rock candy syrup. Use this bar staple recipe given to us by author and former Gramercy Tavern managing partner Nick Mautone in our Basic Iced Tea. If you’re looking for something spiked, try it in the Irish Fix or Mai Tai.

Game plan: Feel free to substitute turbinado sugar for white in this recipe.

This syrup can be made weeks in advance and stored in a very clean container in the refrigerator.

Instructions

  1. 1Place sugar and water in a small saucepan and stir to combine. Bring to a gentle boil over medium-high heat.
  2. 2Reduce heat and simmer until sugar is completely dissolved and syrup is slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
  3. 3Transfer syrup to a container with a tightfitting lid, cover, and refrigerate until ready to use.
