Cocktail syrup is very easy — some would say “simple” — to make. Dump some sugar in some water, heat it until it dissolves, let it cool. If you want a flavour other than “sweet”, you can boil some sort of plant part in the water to impart something special. However, in the case of ginger syrup, this route can give you a dull, not-so-spicy syrup with a “cooked” sort of flavour.

Bitters are basically the spices of the cocktail world, and just a few dashes or drops can round out a drink or give it a bit of depth. Dashing them right into the glass is fine (obviously), but by freezing some of the gentian-infused liquid into a big ol' cube, you get a drink that gets a little more special as you drink it.

Dear Lifehacker, My friend keeps telling me to stop drinking fruit juice because "it's basically just sugar". She also claims it's just as bad as Coca-Cola. I've done some online research but can't find a definitive answer on this. Surely juice is healthier than sugary soft drinks? Or do I really need to quit? (I mainly drink bottled '100%' apple juice and OJ.)
