Pro Tip

Simple Syrup


Syrup is a key base ingredient in many cocktails – like this vodka Aperol cocktail and it’s really easy to make.

Combine equal parts sugar and water in a small saucepan over a medium heat, stirring until the sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from the heat, let the syrup cool, and store refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks.
With a recipe for simple syrup and EFFEN Vodka every cocktail gets an upgrade.
Shake, stir, sip: enjoy a moment of pure pleasure
