Perfect to use in iced tea, lemonade, margaritas, or any number of drinks, blackberry simple syrup is only 3 ingredients and super easy to make.


  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup blackberries


Bring water to a boil in a small pot over medium heat.

Add sugar and stir until dissolved.

Add blackberries. Cook at a gentle boil for 2-3 minutes or until blackberries are soft.

Remove from heat once the mixture starts to foam and rise up in the pot.

Using a potato masher, crush the blackberries.

Allow the mixture to cool for at least 10-15 minutes or until it reaches room temperature.

Set a fine mesh strainer over a bowl. Pour blackberry mixture through the sieve. Discard solids.

Pour syrup into an airtight glass container.

Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
