Homemade strawberry syrup for drinks is so versatile, delicious, and easy to make. It’s only 3 ingredients and can be used in cocktails, mocktails, and even homemade strawberry milk!


Units Scale
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups sliced strawberries (fresh or frozen)


Combine the strawberries, sugar, and water in a small saucepan over medium heat.

Bring the mixture to a bubble, reduce the heat to low, and allow the mixture to cook until the berries are soft. About 10 minutes. 

Remove from heat. 

Using a potato masher, crush the berries in the pot. 

Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature. (About an hour.) 

Pour strawberry mixture through a fine mesh sieve placed over a bowl. 

Discard the berry remnants in the strainer. 

Cool the syrup completely. Store it in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
