Tart Cherry Syrup


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • zest of one lime
  • ½ cup pitted cherries


  1. Place sugar, water, and lime zest in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, let the sugar dissolve, and boil for one minute. Take off of the heat, and add in the cherries. Let steep for 20 minutes and strain out the solids. The syrup will keep in the fridge for a few weeks (if it lasts that long).
