Lime Simple Syrup
from Rick Bayless
- 1 1/2 C granulated sugar (tastes best made with organic evaporated cane juice)
- 1 1/2 C water
- 1 T fresh lime juice
In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, water and lime juice. Set over medium-high heat and bring to a simmer, stirring constantly to dissolve the sugar granules. Remove from the heat, cool and store in a closed container, preferably in the refrigerator for optimal freshness.
This syrup will keep for several weeks in the refrigerator.
