Lemon Simple Syrup
This syrup is an ingredient in our Lemon Ouzo-Ade.
Martha Stewart Living, July 2009
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- 12 strips lemon zest (from 2 lemons)
- Heat sugar, water, and lemon zest in a small saucepan over high heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar dissolves. Let stand until cool, about 20 minutes. (Syrup can be refrigerated for up to 1 week.)
Use a vegetable peeler to remove the zest from the lemons.
