Blackberry Rosemary Herbal Simple Syrup


Fresh rosemary paired with blackberries really gives this simple syrup a nice, complex taste. I love to whip up a batch of the syrup, then add it to a glass of ice and club soda for an all natural flavored 'soda' in the summer. 


I love making natural simple syrups to use in refreshing summer drinks. Add a splash of club soda to the syrup and you've got an instant 'soda' that's way more healthy than store bought sodas since you control the amount and type of sweetener and not difficult to make at all. I make rose petal simple syrup, violet simple syrup and strawberry simple syrup. Now I'm sharing my recipe for blackberry-rosemary simple syrup.

Blackberry-Rosemary Simple Syrup

2 cups granulated sugar (or sweetener of our choice)
2 cups water
Handful of fresh blackberries (fresh or frozen)
4-5 fresh rosemary sprigs

Combine sugar, water, blackberries and rosemary in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, then simmer over low heat, whisking occasionally, for 10 minutes.

Remove from the heat and cool, then pour through a fine mesh strainer, discarding the solids. Add two ounces of infused syrup to a glass full of ice and top with club soda. Garnish with a fresh blackberry threaded onto a rosemary ‘skewer,’ if desired.

(Leftover syrup will last in the refrigerator for about a month.)
