I have a super easy DIY project for you today: simple syrup. Some call it sugar water or classic syrup; it's all the same!
I was in the baking aisle of the grocery store and I couldn't believe what I saw... simple syrup was for sale. I had no idea that something so easy and inexpensive to make was available to buy. That's was a shocker to me, but the even bigger shocker was the price.
A small bottle of simple syrup cost much more than a 5 pound bag of sugar. Do you have any idea how much simple syrup you could make with 5 pounds of sugar???? Let's not even go there.
Instead, I'm going to share how to make simple syrup. Simple syrup serves many purposes, but the most common is to sweeten liquids like iced coffee and mixed drinks.
Have you ever gone to a coffee shop and ordered an iced coffee and wanted it sweetened and the barista points you in the direction of sugar packets? Oh man, good luck getting the sugar to dissolve in ice cold coffee! I think it's a complete shame that any coffee shop wouldn't have simple syrup. A huge turn off for this iced coffee lover!!
Hope all of you are having an amazing week.
I'll be back Friday with an awesome workout :)
