Once you mastered this basic recipe, you can make your own twists to the syrup. I've used 1/2 c of sugar for this. You can adjust the amount of sugar for desired sweetness.
1 c cold water
1/4c - 3/4 c sugar (regular or dietetic)
Heat water on high just until it just comes to boil in saucepan.
Reduce heat to medium, add sugar. Stir sugar 2-5 min or until it's fully dissolved.
Remove from heat and let cool. Pour into small container with lid. Store in refrigerator until needed.
