Lime Simple Syrup

  1. In a small saucepan, over medium heat, combine the sugar, water, and lime zest. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved. Remove the pan from the heat and allow the syrup to cool for 20 minutes. Strain before using.
