Simple syrup recipe... not so much a recipe as it is a method. You need equal parts 1:1 of sugar and water; most recipes call for boiling the sugar and water together until the sugar is dissolved. Totally unnecessary.

In fact when you boil them together you run the risk of overboiling and reducing the liquid too much - which can give you an oversweet result. So just pour hot boiling water from a kettle and stir.

Easy. Easy. Easy.
