Sugar syrup is a commonly used ingredient in many cocktails and other drink recipes. It's also easy to make! Watch this recipe being made in the Allrecipes Sugar Syrup for Dirnks and Cocktails Video.
Altered ingredient amounts. This can be made in several ways. It is all dependant on the ratio of sugar to water you would use. Instead of a 50/50 ratio try a 60/40 ratio with each ingredient being dominante. The 60/40 sugar version would be a richer syrup while the 60/40 water syrup would be a thinner less sweet version. It is dependant on your customers or friends drinking cocktails with you some people like more sweet some people like less sweet. Also use different sugars for different flavours...try raw sugar or brown sugar the only difference is that raw and brown sugar HAVE TO BE BOILED because they do not dissolve as readily as white sugar will. With the white sugar syrup you really do not need to boil it....you can just use hot water and stir in the sugar. Good luck - 04 Jun 2011
