Want to make your own syrup for coffee, tea or mixed drinks? Me too! This raspberry syrup was so simple and there are only three ingredients.

Here's what you'll need:

  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of raspberries
  • cheesecloth
  • small sauce pan
  • wooden spoon
  • storage container or jar


  • Mix water and raspberries in a sauce pan and bring to a soft boil.
  • Once the mixture is at a soft boil lower hear immediately and add sugar.
  • Cook for 5 minutes on medium heat, and stir the mixture until sugar is dissolved. 


  • Strain the mixture through a cheesecloth
  • Store the mixture in a container of your choice.

That's all! Now you have syrup to add to Italian sodas, coffee, tea and mixed drinks.
