Simple sugar syrups
Inverted sugar syrup

Inverted sugar syrup, also known as simple syrup, is a basic sugar-and-water syrup. It is used by bartenders as a sweetener to make cocktails, and as a yeast feeding agent in ethanol fermentation.

The ratio of sugar to water is 1:1 by volume for normal simple syrup, but can get up to 2:1 for rich simple syrup. For pure sucrose the saturation limit is about 5:1 (500 grams (18 oz) sucrose to 100 millilitres (3.5 imp fl oz; 3.4 US fl oz) water).

The Best Simple Syrup Is Shaken, Not Stirred
Besides booze, a sugar syrup is what inherently makes a cocktail a cocktail, adding texture, balance, and drinkability.

What is simple syrup?
Simply put: It’s a mixture of one part sugar and one part water. Typically, that sugar will be of the white, granulated, “regular” kind, though back in Thomas’s day he used a more flavorful loaf-sugar, not to mention egg whites. According to the recent The Oxford Companion to Spirits and Cocktails, it was initially “called ‘simple’ by pharmacists to differentiate it from compounded syrups, made with medicinal plants.” Today, however, it’s simple because just about everyone has a massive, leaky sack of Domino or C&H in their cabinets—it’s the same sugar you might bake with.
