Units Scale
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1.5 cups sweet cherries, fresh or frozen


If using fresh cherries, remove the pits. (You can skip this step by using frozen cherries since they’re already pitted.)

Combine water, sugar, and cherries in a small pot over medium heat.

Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally until the sugar dissolves.

Reduce to low heat and let mixture bubble until it starts to foam, about 5 minutes. Using a potato masher, crush the cherries to release all of their juices.

Remove from heat and allow to cool for 10-15 minutes.

Pour the cooled mixture through a fine mesh strainer set over a bowl. Discard the cherry pieces.

Store your cherry simple syrup in a mason jar or other glass, airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.



Cherry syrup will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
