What is Simple Syrup:

Simple syrup is a liquid sweetener that’s made by dissolving sugar in water. It really is simple. The beauty of simple syrup, and why it’s so popular with the mixed drink crowd is that it dissolves evenly in drinks of any temperature.

Granulated sugar does technically dissolve in cold liquids; but ask any person who’s tried to stir sugar into an iced coffee, and they know the struggle of seeing that sugar sink to the bottom of the cup no matter how much you stir it. Simple syrup takes care of that because it’s already liquid.
