Sugar Syrup

Sugar syrup is used in a few recipes on this page.
It is simply 1 part water to 1 part sugar.
You can dissolve the sugar in the water using a pan on a hob, or add boiling water to a jar.
You can use any sugar. In the rum recipes, we used demerara cane sugar.

This makes 200ml of sugar syrup. Scale up or down as you need to.

  1. Add 125g of sugar to a jar or jug
  2. Add 125g of boiling water to the jar
  3. Stir and wait for all the sugar to be dissolved before transferring to a bottle
