Raspberry Simple Syrup Recipe


  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cups washed raspberries


  1. Bring the sugar, water and fruit to a boil in a heavy saucepan.
  2. Turn down the heat and allow the mix to simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the fruit is very soft and coming apart.
  3. Remove from heat.  (Optional: You can pour syrup and fruit through a sieve now if you want it to be just syrup.  But I made this for a cocktail and I wanted the fruit and seeds for the drink.)
  4. Allow to fully cool.
  5. Store in the refrigerator for up to 10 days.

There are many uses for simple syrups

  • You can add it to club soda for a fresh homemade fruit soda
  • Make a flavored lemonade or iced tea
  • Use it to flavor plain yogurt
  • Or if you want to get buck wild add it in your pancake batter on a Saturday morning and surprise your kids with pink pancakes!

The possibilities are really endless on flavors.  I have made a strawberry one that is extremely delicious.  I want to try my hand at peach this summer!
