Simple syrup is just a mixture of granulated sugar and water. The ratio can vary from recipe to recipe.
All you do is place sugar in a small saucepot with water, bring it to a simmer to make sure the sugar is dissolved. Then let it cool, that’s it!

How long does blueberry simple syrup last?
This is tricky, I have read simple syrups like this one can last up to one month. However, with the addition of fresh berries, I think it is safer to say use it within a week stored in an airtight container in the fridge.
