Simple syrup is our preferred way to sweeten cold drinks (iced tea, lemonaide, cocktails, etc). Sugar doesn't dissolve easily in cold water, but once it's dissolved it doesn't come out of solution. The trick is to dissolve sugar into hot water and then cool it down--that's all there is to it and is also why it's called simple syrup.
This isn't a standalone recipe (unless you're seriously addicted to sweets), so expect delicious drink recipes using simple syrup in short order.
