Like most simple syrup recipes, all you need is a few ingredients and time. And once it’s made, you can store it the fridge for up to a week. Once you’ve made this  and realize just how simple it is, you’ll be upgrading your drink game all summer long.

cup blackberries 

large sprigs of rosemary (or as much as you can spare!) 

cup sugar 

cup water 


Add rosemary sprigs to saucepan and lightly toast to open up aromas. 


Add water, sugar, then blackberries to the lowly heated saucepan. 


Lightly mash the blackberries with potato masher. 


Stir frequently on medium-low heat until the mix begins to boil and all the sugar is dissolved. 


Turn heat off and mash with potato masher one more to release juices and oils.  


Allow to sit and steep for half an hour or more. 


Strain through fine metal colander to storage container.


This can be stored in the fridge for 7-10 days. It is great in our blackberry cocktail, over ice cream or on your favorite pancakes!
