How to Make Maple Simple Syrup
To keep things healthier, this mocktail is sweetened with an unrefined maple simple syrup instead of a classic simple syrup that uses white refined sugar. To make the maple simple syrup, add equal parts simple syrup and water to a small sauce pan. Heat the mixture to a low simmer and let the syrup cook for around five minutes until it begins to thicken a bit.
Once the syrup has slightly thickened, remove it from the heat and allow the simple syrup to cool. When the syrup has come to a complete cool, transfer it to a clean, air-tight, storage container. For the best results, store the simple syrup in the fridge to keep it fresh.
