They don’t call it simple syrup because it’s hard to make.

Simple syrup is a staple ingredient in many cocktail recipes and is essential to keep on hand if you like mixing cocktails at home.

Storing simple syrup in a small squeeze bottle makes it easy to work. The syrup should be stored in the fridge and can last for several weeks.
