Smoked Simple Syrup

By Traeger Kitchen

Simple syrup, made by dissolving sugar in water, is the perfect way to sweeten drinks like iced tea, sangria, and cocktails. Smoking the mixture gives it an incredible depth of flavor. Try it in your next Manhattan or margarita and you may never go back to plain. This makes about 3 cups, which is ample for a large party. But it also keeps, covered and refrigerated, for up to 2 months. If you prefer yours thicker, as some bartenders do, increase the amount of sugar up to a 2:1 ratio.
