At the heart of most great cocktails, there is simple syrup. It isn't a complicated ingredient. It's nothing more than sugar and water — so why do we buy off-the-shelf simple syrup instead of making it at home, and knowing exactly what goes into it?
Studio Neat is so great at very simple, very thoughtful products, and the Simple Syrup Kit is another great one. The bottle is marked so that you always get the 1:1 sugar to water ratio just right. Then just pop on the cap, shake, and you've got perfect simple syrup. The pour spout is even specially designed to not get gummed up and crusty over time.
Mark the date and type on the bottle with the included dry erase marker, and enjoy this delectable ingredient in your cocktails for months to come. BONUS: combine it with a Neat Ice Kit and you'll really look like you know what you're doing.
