The other commenter apparently doesn't understand what syrup is made out of. Of course it's sugar, you moron! In any case, this is quite nice.

This is a simple syrup and it's used a little at a time as a sweetener for things such as lemonade or adding to a cocktail, iced tea, etc. to add another interesting layer of flavor.
