In the past, we’ve shared “How To Take The edge Off” from your hotel room. That was a hit and many people could connect with the approaches we shared in that post.

In this one, we’ll share a simple few steps that can help you enhance your cocktail made right from your hotel room, with simple syrup.

How To Make Simple Syrup In Hotel Room

Simple Syrup is quite simple to make, but it can really enhance your home made cocktail from your in room bar.

To make simple syrup, you’ll need to assemble a few items that are standard in your hotel room. The ingredients and items are as follows:

• Two packets of sugar
• A cup
• A bottle of water
• A coffee stir stick


First pour the sugar into the cup. Add water about half way to the top in the cup. But don’t over do it. Too much water added and you’ll need to add more sugar.

Next, place the water cup into the microwave for about 45 seconds. Take the cup out and stir.


Finally, test the water to make sure it is not too hot. If it tastes ok, and has enough sugar taste, you’ve made it.

Now simply add the simple syrup to your homemade cocktail of choice. In my case, a home made margarita.


Bottom Line

Simple Syrup can really enhance a cocktail made in your hotel room. The best part is the ingredients are typically found in your hotel room and are free.

Have you ever made a cocktail from your hotel room? What were the ingredients? How did you make it and how did it turn out?

  1. You are too funny! My husband likes rum and cokes and he likes to bring along bacardi nips to kick things off in the room!

  2. Yes many times. Bring an extra bottle of Woodford from your Delta flight. Pour in glass and enjoy your glass of bourbon neat.

    Obviously my idea of a cocktail is different than most, although I occasionally mix gin, ice and sparkling water. Also, very easy in a hotel room.
