  • 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.
