- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
Prepare an ice-water bath. In a large saucepan, combine sugar and water; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook until sugar has completely dissolved, about 10 minutes. Transfer the syrup to a bowl, and set the bowl over the ice-water bath. Let stand, stirring occasionally, until chilled. Store the syrup in an airtight container, refrigerated, for up to 2 months.
