Since being home from our vacation, I have been on a mission to replicate Royal Caribbean’s strawberry daiquiri!

What is a simple syrup?
Simple syrup is easy to make and is commonly used to sweeten cocktails, iced tea, lemonade, and other cold drinks. Simple syrup consists of equal parts water and granulated sugar, that is brought to a boil over medium heat to allow the sugar to fully dissolve. Your homemade simple syrup can be stored in the fridge for up to 30 days.
