Simple syrup is a liquid form of sugar that can easily be used to sweeten iced coffee, iced tea and coffee or tea spirits (such as this black tea vodka).
Although simple syrups are expensive to buy, they are easy and cheap to make. You can learn to make your own simple syrups with this collection of flavored simple syrup recipes, including coffee-flavored simple syrups, simple syrups for flavoring teas and coffees, masala chai simple syrup (pictured above) and much more.
