Strawberry Simple Syrup
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 pint strawberries (about 8 ounces, fresh or frozen), stems removed
Ingredients for 1 serving
  • 2-3 Tablespoons strawberry simple syrup
  • ½ Tablespoon lime juice
  • 8 ounces fizzy (or not) water
  • strawberries and lime slices for garnish
  1. To make strawberry simple syrup, combine water and sugar in a small saucepan and heat, stirring occasionally until sugar dissolves. Add strawberries, bring to a boil and cook until strawberries are soft and pulpy, 20-30 minutes. Strain the syrup (reserving the pulp for yogurt or pancake topping if desired). Cool the syrup.
  2. For one serving, combined 2-3 tablespoons of strawberry syrup, ½ tablespoon of lime juice and 1 cup fizzy (or plain) water. Taste and adjust ratios to your personal preference. Serve with ice, garnished with lime slices and fresh berries if desired.
Leftover syrup will keep refrigerated for about a week.
