In a pinch, this base syrup can be used in place of honey or agave nectar. Not just for mixed drinks, just stir in flavoring of choice, such as pure maple extract, for an inexpensive replacement for Maple syrup.

  2. Bring mixture to a boil; stir until sugar is dissolved.
  3. Remove pan from heat; cool completely.
Pour syrup off into container with tight-fitting lid.
Refrigerate up to 1 month.
