Quick simple syrup (no-stove, 1 minute)

Simple syrup or sugar-water is often used in making cocktail. You can buy it at the store, but why should you when it’s so easy to make? It’s made by dissolving equal parts (1:1) of sugar and water. Normally, this is done over the stove. However, we have an easier method.

At JewelPie, we try to reduce taking in refined sugar and enjoy alcoholic drinks only once in a while. As simple syrup for cocktails is only made whenever we throw a party, we put our syrup in a glass bottle with a pretty label.

Do you use sugar-water for your drinks?
