Blackberry Simple Syrup Recipe

  • Yield: 2 cups 1x


This easy syrup recipe takes homemade cocktails to the next level. Fresh lime juice gives the syrup a pop of acidity to cut through the sweetness. And the color is to die for.  


  1. 8 oz fresh blackberries
  2. 1 cup of sugar
  3. 2 cups of water 
  4. 1/2 of a lime (juice)


  1. Place all the ingredients in a pot set over medium heat, and heat the mixture, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking, until it comes to a light boil. 
  2. Reduce heat to simmer. After 2 minutes mash blackberries with a potato masher or wooden spoon. Continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, until the mixture turns a dark red/purple color. It will only slightly coat the back of a spoon.
  3. Allow it to cool so you don't burn yourself, then pass the mixture through a fine mesh sieve. 
  4. Store in an airtight container or glass jar.
