SUGAR SYRUP RECIPE
Fill a cup or bowl (depending on how much you want to make) with white sugar, top it up with boiling water until the receptacle is just about half full and keep stirring until the sugar is fully dissolved. Refrigerate when not in use. Putting a teaspoon of sugar into a cocktails being lazy, it does not do the job properly as the sugar dissolves.
