Simple syrup can be used to sweeten tea, lemonade, homemade ice cream, cocktails, and fruit salad -- or even to moisten and flavor cakes.
In a saucepan, bring sugar and water to a boil; simmer until the sugar is dissolved, approximately 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool completely.
Once cooled, iit is ready to use. Or, plain simple syrup can be refrigerated in a glass jar for up to 1 month.
