A 1:1 syrup made of equal parts water and sugar is standard, but feel free to augment the ratio as required by recipes or for personal taste.
1 cup White sugar
1 cup Water
- Combine the water and sugar in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
- Reduce to a simmer and stir until sugar dissolves, then immediately take the saucepan off the heat.
- Let cool, then pour into a container (a Mason jar works nicely) and store in the refrigerator for up to one month.
