Molasses simple syrup cocktail mix

Eric, the creator of this recipe, calls it “fancy but simple syrup” because it makes use of fancy molasses in place of white sugar usually called for in a simple syrup. The standard simple syrup is sweet but flavourless. Using molasses as the sugar base elevates this simple syrup to a whole new level, making it the ideal companion in all sorts of cocktails, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic.
