What on earth is simple syrup? Essentially, simple syrup is a liquid sweetener primarily made from dissolved sugar (or another sweetener) in water. Simple syrups can be used to sweeten and balance either full proof or non-alcoholic cocktails.
Non-alcoholic cocktails use Ritual liquor replacements to mimic the flavor of beloved spirits but without the intoxicating effects of alcohol. Ritual is crafted of natural botanicals to deliver the experience of the original, without the unwanted side effects.
People have added simple syrups to cocktails, coffees, and other beverages to enhance their flavors for hundreds of years. Simple syrup offers a blank canvas to explore the endless possibilities of creative infusions. Check out this unique way to make your own simple syrup at home!
