In this episode of Absolut Drinks with Rico we’re making one of the single most important ingredients to keep in your home bar: Simple Syrup.
Essentially, simple syrup is what we use in cocktails when we want to add sweetness, without getting sugar grnaules in our drinks. To make it yourself, you only need two ingredients: Sugar and water.
In addition to basic simple syrup, we’re also going to show you how to make flavored simple syrup with everything from vanilla pods to leftover pastry as well as 3 different uses for simple syrup in your home bar. Before you ask: yes, those 3 uses are drink recipes.
