Mixology 101: Peach Simple Syrup

Simple syrups got their name for a reason: they are fantastically easy to make. This peach simple syrup can be added to hundreds of cocktails, or to the top of your morning pancakes.

Ingredients (multiply as needed)
1 cup fresh organic peaches
1 cup water
3/4 cup sugar
Yields 1/2 cup

Combine all of the ingredients in a saucepan over a low flame, stirring occasionally. Once the peaches have broken down almost completely, strain the liquid into a container. Use any left over bits as jam, and refrigerate the syrup until needed.
