Preparation

For the Raspberry & Rose Simple Syrup

Add all ingredients to a medium sauce pan on medium heat. Let syrup come to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Cook for about 8-10 minutes to extract color and flavor from the raspberries. Remove syrup from heat then pour through a mesh strainer to remove raspberry pulp. Store syrup in air tight container or bottle and refrigerate. Serve with your favorite cocktail or make a tasty mocktail with syrup and soda water! Syrup will keep for up to six months in the fridge.
