How to make the Raspberry Lime Syrup….

Author Debi

Ingredients

  • sugar
  • water
  • flavorings like citrus rind rosemary, cinnamon sticks, etc
  • fruit

Instructions

  1. Take equal parts sugar and water (I usually use 1 cup of each) and add in the hardier flavorings like citrus rind, rosemary, black pepper, cinnamon sticks. Bring to a boil, let the sugar dissolve, and boil for one minute. Take off of the heat, and add in the softer fruits, like raspberries, peaches, cherries. I usually add about ½ cup of fruit, though more or less will not be that big of a deal. 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).
  2. As an added bonus, the cherries were delicious after steeping in the lime syrup, and I got to have a little snack out of them.
