Simple syrup beside a cocktail.
Keeping a jar of simple syrup in your pantry may seem like a waste of space, but once you have it, you’ll reach for it more than you think. And sure, you can buy a bottle of prepared simple syrup for many dollars, but it’s sort of absurdly easy and inexpensive to make at home.…



    This is something I would like to hand from time to time, but how should it be stored and how long will it last?


      You can keep it in the fridge for about a month. If you don’t use it much but just want to have it handy, you can make a small batch, like 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 cup of sugar at a time.

  2. For longer storage could the simple syrup be frozen in an ice cube tray and then thawed and used when needed?


      You definitely could do that! The beauty of simple syrup, though, is that you can make it in as small a batch as you need, so if you find you aren’t using it all, you can half the batch.
