Pro Tip

Simple Syrup

Simple syrup is a key ingredient in many cocktails – 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.


This syrup adds a shot of balancing sweetness to our delicious basil drink.

With a recipe for simple syrup and EFFEN Vodka every cocktail gets an upgrade.
Shake, stir, sip: enjoy a moment of pure pleasure
