Sugar (your preferred type)
5 tablespoons
5 tablespoons


1. Add the sugar and water to a saucepan and turn on the heat.
2. Once the mixture has been brought to a boil, set heat to medium.

4. Pour into a heat-resistant container and chill.

Story Behind this Recipe

Buying gum syrup every time I wanted an iced coffee was annoying so I decided to just make some myself.
