For a fun twist, shake with ice, strain, then top off with sparkling wine or sparkling water.

I keep my simple syrup in a plastic condiment bottle in the refrigerator. It’s easier to measure out small amounts.

If you like making cocktails, I highly recommend a 2 ounce measuring cup. It’s more accurate than a regular shot glass, and there are fewer dribbles since it’s actually designed for pouring. Mine is from Pampered Chef. I remember it had a ridiculous price for something so small, but I love it. I think Oxo makes one too.
