Fine sugar

Fine sugar is simply sugar with a very small crystal size, which helps it dissolve in cold drinks quickly. Fine sugar should not be confused with powdered or confectioner's sugar, which contains cornstarch. 

Fine sugar can be homemade easily by putting sugar in a spice grinder and pulsing 15-20 times.
