    *In a small saucepan, combine equal parts sugar and water.  (I usually use 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar, and keep on hand in the fridge for use in beverages.) Cook over medium-high heat, stirring, until sugar dissolves completely. Transfer to a heat-proof pitcher and refrigerate until well chilled, about 30 minutes before use in a drink.  Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 2 months.
