Simple syrup lasts for about a week in the fridge but it is so easy to make that you can always just make it when you need it. Many recipes call for simple syrup. Iced Tea, cocktails...etc. 


Add ingredients to a heavy sauce pan over high heat and let boil for 3-5 minutes. Let cool and store for up to a week.
