*We recommend for immediate use of simple syrup, use 'quick ice method' to bring temperature down. Fill Amandine pitcher with ice cubes, strain warm 16oz Perfect Tea Maker with dissolved sugar directly on Pitcher. Strain excess ice cubes with a mesh strainer, directly into a reusable container. Ready to use immediately. Simple syrup stays fresh in fridge for one week.
