Fresh Raspberry Simple Syrup Recipe
This raspberry simple syrup takes just a few minutes and requires no cooking. The result is a vibrant, sweet and tart syrup that adds a pop of berry flavor to drinks, breakfast, or desserts!
- 1 cup fresh raspberries (about one 6 oz container)
- ½ cup sugar
- ½ cup hot water
Combine the hot water and sugar in a mason jar or other heat proof container and stir until all of the sugar has dissolved. This is your base simple syrup.
In a separate mason jar or other container, add the raspberries and muddle them thoroughly with a muddler, wooden spoon, or potato masher.
Use a fine mesh strainer to strain the raspberry juice into the jar of base simple syrup.
Press on the solids to extract as much liquid as possible. Stir to combine.
This recipe will yield approximately 1 cup of syrup. Store your fresh raspberry syrup in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
