This simple syrup could not be more SIMPLE! Truly, anyone can make this recipe and it only takes three ingredients.

The flavor of our raspberry simple syrup, like our raspberry gluten-free pop tarts, is absolutely delicious! It has just the right amount of fruity flavor while not being too overpowering. 

It is perfect for making mocktails. Whether you are new to mocktail making or a pro, raspberry simple syrup can easily elevate many drinks. I love to change up our cranberry mocktail and make it raspberry for a summer refresher!

So what is raspberry simple syrup made of?

With just few simple ingredients and a couple of minutes, you can make this delicious and fresh sweetener with just a hint of fruit.

We use the following ingredients…

  • Water
  • Sugar
  • Fresh Raspberries

Yep, that’s it! It’s really more simple than you think. The water and sugar should always be equal parts. The fruit is usually 1.5X the water and sugar you use.

Is simple syrup the same as liquid sugar?

Yes, simple syrup is just liquified sugar. It is made by dissolving dry sugar into water. 

What is the purpose of simple syrup?

Dissolving the dry sugar into water liquifies it which makes it much easier to mix into drinks without making them gritty. You can also easily brush it on cakes as a way to make them more moist before frosting.
