 As summer approaches, I prepare simple syrup for iced coffee in the morning. This seems like a good vessel for something sweet. :P

Every joke and pun I can think of regarding the “man” bottle in the picture, and the sticky sweetness of simple syrup inside, is a bit too lewd for mixed company. :P

Basic Recipe
makes approximately 1 1/2 cups

1 cup sugar
1 cup water

Simple, right?
Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan and simmer over medium heat, stirring until sugar is completely dissolved. Allow mixture to cool, then decant into a clean container (preferably glass) with a tight-fitting lid. — or cork, like the sexy male torso bottle pictured. ;)

Keeps in the refrigerator for several weeks.

  • If you’ve got some vanilla ice cream in the freezer, float a small scoopful on top of your iced coffee.
  • Iced Coffee Float anybody? Put a couple of scoops of vanilla ice cream into a tall glass then top with cold black coffee. It’s not exactly “diet” friendly but a little indulgence every once in a while doesn’t hurt.

Simple syrup is also great for fresh brewed iced tea and any mixed drink that calls for sugar.

Stay Cool!
