  • I've made this syrup with cane sugar, raw sugar and honey. They all work well!
  • If you substitute honey, use 2 tsp for every 1 tbsp sugar, so instead of 1/4 cup sugar, you'll use 2 tbsp + 2 tsp honey. 
  • You can adjust the amount of sugar to suit your taste.
  • Simple syrup will last in the refrigerator for up to one month, so make a bigger batch if you'd like!
