Simple syrup is an essential cocktail ingredient that every DIY bartender should know how to make. The batch makes more than you'll need for a single pitcher cocktail, but it keeps in the fridge for up to 1 month. Use any leftovers for other cocktails, or to sweeten non-alcoholic beverages such as iced tea and lemonade.
