Why buy the store brands when you can make this simply and quickly in comfort of your own kitchen!

This comes from my favorite bar book and is ridiculously easy to make.  Just remember that it will need to cool and will last about 30 days – so prepare it ahead of your next cocktail party.

  • 1 cups of water
  • 2 cup granulated sugar

Place the water in a small saucepan, and bring to a boil and remove from the heat.  Stir in the sugar until completely dissolved and then allow to cool.  Makes approximately 2 cups.  Store in a clean glass container and you are ready for some amazing cocktails and you just saved yourself $5!
