In a pan, on a hob, boil sugar and water in a ratio of 2:1 That is one part sugar (In grams) and two parts boiling water (In ml) for example. 500ML boiling water, mixed with 250Grams Sugar. Once the sugar has dissolved, pour into a bottle and voilà! its done.
Side note: Yes, that is not a half pint in the picture. its actually a decorative vase. which happened to hold the same amount of liquid as a half pint. none "standard" glasses make the best cocktail vessels you know... Thats how you make it big in this biz. Thats how the big shots in London make their cocktails look so good. Oh, and the dusting on the glass is blended dehydrated orange peels and wheat. We have a whole section on dusting here if you're interested
