When you make simple syrups yourself, you also have the opportunity to infuse delicious flavors into the syrup, to make amazing, delicious, complex, gourmet drinks that are astonishingly easy! Lavender infused lemonade for a French-themed wedding, anyone?
Simple syrup is nothing more than equal parts water and sugar, heated until the sugar dissolves.
