Editors Review

Simple Syrup is a much needed ingredient for making drinks. Drinks don’t always mean alcoholic drinks or cocktails, it can be a smart alternative to making beverages like ice tea, fruit punch and even cold drinks. When granulated sugar is added to cold beverages, it sits at the bottom and the whole purpose of adding sugar is lost. Simple syrup dissolves quickly and that's why it’s smart to use it instead of sugar. It’s pretty simple and Nikko has the recipe for us.
