To make simple syrup:
Boil 1 part water.
Turn heat to low and add 1 part sugar.
Stir until sugar is all the way dissolved.
If you won’t be using all of the simple syrup right away add a little bit of vodka.
Once the simple syrup is cooled, transfer it to a bottle or a jar.
Simple syrup can be stored in the fridge for about a week.
Come back tomorrow for a Blood Orange Martini featuring simple syrup. You will be happy you did.
