Lemon Simple Syrup

7 Comments

Here is a quick and easy recipe for Lemon Simple Syrup. You can make a batch of this lemony sweetness to include in many of your favorite recipes. Sometimes I make a double batch just to make sure I have it on hand. It’s great to use in desserts, such as to soak a cake, as a sweetener in your summertime iced tea or in a refreshing cocktail like a margarita, or whatever else you need to sweeten with some lemon goodness!

1 cup sugar
Zest from 1 lemon
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice

Heat sugar, zest, and 1 cup water in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring, until sugar has dissolved. Bring to a boil. Pour through a fine sieve into a medium bowl; discard solids. Let cool completely then stir in the fresh lemon juice.  Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 1 month.

So, add some sweet goodness to your summer recipes with this Lemon Simple Syrup — you’ll be glad you did!
