  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • cup sliced jalapeño (from 1-2 jalapeño peppers)


  • Put water and sugar in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Add sliced jalapeños.
  • Lower heat and let simmer for about 10 minutes, until syrup has thickened. 
  • Pour mixture into a heat-proof bowl or mason jar (strain peppers out if you want to keep the spiciness level down). Place bowl or jar in fridge to cool completely before using.



  • Simple syrup should last for about a month when stored in an airtight container in the fridge.
