Fortunately, the only thing that’s basic about this simple syrup are the ingredients…there are only 2!




  1. Add your Demerara sugar and water to a small pot over medium heat.
  2. Continuously stir the sugar so that it dissolves (about 5-10 minutes).
  3. Once the sugar has dissolved, remove your pot from the heat and let your syrup sit until cool.
  4. Pour into a mason jar or other glass container and save for your mocktails, cocktails, or any other kind of drinks! 🙂
