Don't let the prospect of making simple syrup keep you from making this cocktail--making it is the easiest thing in the world. In a small saucepan combine 1 cup of sugar with 1 cup of water. Cook over medium heat until the sugar is completely dissolved and the mixture just reaches a boil—2 to 3 minutes. Cool completely before using. (Makes about 1 cup.)
