The Fastest And Easiest Way To Make Simple Syrup (Hint: Using the Vitamix Aer!)

If you enjoy making cocktails or experimenting with mixed drinks, then you’re familiar with simple syrup. It’s quite a simple recipe: water and sugar. But that simple concoction transforms shallow drinks into deep wells of flavor!

You’re probably thinking, “Simple syrup isn’t that difficult to make. How can it possibly be faster or easier?” That’s a reasonable response. Allow me to elaborate. (You can thank me later!)

First of all, the Vitamix Aer disc container has volume markings on the container. That’s one less measuring cup to pull out of the cupboard. Just fill the container with your desired amount of water. You’re right, it’s not that difficult to measure water in a measuring cup and to pour it into a pot.

Next, you add the sugar to the Vitamix Aer disc container. Again, you would pour the same amount of sugar into the pot of water. But here is where the tables turn.

You turn on the Vitamix and let it run for 5 minutes. You can leave the kitchen to take a shower, or fold laundry, or start cooking dessert, or {fill in the blank with an activity of your choice here}. When you return, your syrup is complete. If you placed it on the stove, you’ve have to watch it to ensure that it doesn’t boil over, and to see if the sugar has all dissolved. I often find myself standing there stirring so that I can assist in the dissolving process.

Lastly, with the traditional method of making simple syrup you funnel the mixture into another container and then wash the pot and utensil. No big deal, but the Vitamix has a pouring spout so you won’t spill the contents. And one of the best advantages of a Vitamix (in my opinion) is that it cleans itself. Yep, you heard that properly. The Vitamix Aer disc container (as well as all of the containers) are self-cleaning. Fill the container with water and one drop of dish soap, then run on high for 30 seconds. Rinse and you’re done.  

It should all make sense now. Making simple syrup in the Vitamix Aer disc container is faster and easier than the traditional method.
