Simple syrup is the easy to make building block for delicious cocktails.
Add water and sugar to a small saucepan over medium heat.
Stir until sugar is dissolved.
Strain into a jar and seal tightly with a lid.
Simple syrup will keep, refrigerated, for about a month.
*Use Demerara sugar for a richer flavor.

@nickaha - I just discovered St. Germains liqueur. This might serve as a nice sub for simple syrup
So go out and buy a manufactured syrup made with exactly the same ingredients! Oy!
I don't understand the tradition of using Simple Syrup. It is used in many of the drinks I love, but it seems somewhat low-class to use sugar water as a sweetener with quality spirits. I wish there was an alternative liquor/spirit to use. I'd much prefer my cocktail had all spirits and juices rather than '1-part sugar water'.
