Simple syrup can be stored at room temperature or in the refrigerator, whichever you prefer. You can use a glass or plastic container just be sure the simple syrup is cooled before pouring in if you are going to use plastic. 
It does not need to be refrigerated. It handles well at room temperature.
You can keep it for 1-2 weeks at room temperature or about 1 month in the refrigerator. Once it starts to get cloudy or discolored, it is no longer good.
This recipe can be used with either fresh or frozen strawberries.
