Sure, you can make simple syrup in a flash by vigorously shaking equal parts granulated sugar and water in a tightly sealed jar until the sugar dissolves, but for syrups infused with flavor, you'll have to apply the heat and wait for it to cool before using. Set yourself up for sweet cocktail success (and have fun experimenting with flavors) by simmering up a batch or two over the weekend. Our top picks: lavender, thyme, and ginger (but feel free to let your imagination run wild).
