Lebanese Simple Syrup

Measure and add the sugar and water into a medium pot. Mix to dissolve the sugar very well. Bring the pot to medium heat. Right when the mixture starts to boil, time 5 minutes of boiling time. Then add in the orange and rose water as well as a squeeze of lemon juice into the pot. Continue to boil for 2 more minutes. Remove from heat and allow the syrup to cool completely before adding into a storage container or bottle. If you are using this to add into another recipe, make the syrup ahead of time so it cools down a little before adding it into the other recipe.

Do not use dark sugar or powdered sugar. Only white granulated cane sugar works best for the recipe.
Be careful not to over boil the mixture as you don't want to caramelize it. It shouldn't be golden brown.
