Simplicity is the hallmark of a genius. If I'm not a genius for this recipe, then I don't know what I am :)

Among others, I have used sugar syrup to prepare fruit juices: apple juice, nashi pear juice, lemonade, orange juice, strawberry lemonade juice, pineapple juice, asam boi grass jelly drink, Spanish melon juice, and grapefruit juice. The sugar syrup could also be used to make other drinks or dessert or dishes that require instant sugar.


In the recipe below the steps refer to preparing a bottle (750ml) of sugar syrup, but I prepared 2 bottles of sugar syrup for photo presentation purpose (looks nicer with 2 bottles).
