When making simple syrup...

How long will it last without settling? I'm planning on using 2 cups of granulated sugar to 2 cups of boiling water. Can I get a couple of days of use out of it?
At that level of sugar to water, you should not have any recrystalization as long as you bring it to a boil and let it boil until it appears clear.
Just my $0.02, but I make simple syrup as 2 parts sugar to 1 water because I want to be able to control the amount of water in each individual drink. If there isn't enough after my simple syrup addition I can always add more water; if anyone knows how to get water OUT of a drink I'd love to hear it.
