Rich Raspberry Syrup

A great raspberry syrup for cocktails and mocktails.



This rich raspberry syrup might be the best tasting raspberry syrup we have ever had! We were originally looking for a great raspberry syrup to use in a classic raspberry cocktail, The Clover Club, and when we made this recipe, we knew that we would be using this Rich Raspberry syrup in more than just cocktails! Rich Simple Syrup is thicker than other simple syrups, which is perfect in aforementioned Clover Club!

Raspberry Syrup

For this rich raspberry syrup, we started out by making a rich simple syrup. Rich simple syrup is basically a sweeter, stronger flavored version of simple syrup that reduces the amount of water used to make it, which prevents the syrup from watering down your drink. This is great for cocktails and homemade sodas, where you need lots of sweetness with limited dilution.


We love to use rich simple syrup in drinks like an Old Fashioned or drinks where we have ice in the drink which is going to water down the drink as it melts.


What Ingredients are Needed for the Rich Raspberry Syrup?

(More info below in recipe!)

  • Raspberries
  • Sugar
  • Water


We also used a cold steeping process, infusing the fruit flavor into the syrup when the syrup is cool. The cold steeping process slowly extracts the flavors into the syrup, retaining the subtle fresh fruit flavors that sometimes get lost when the fruit is cooked during a hot syrup making process.



The result is a wonderfully flavored syrup that tastes just like a freshly picked raspberry!


Can Simple Syrups go bad?

They can get moldy if they sit too long. We encourage you to store it in the fridge in a bottle or jar but for no more than one to two weeks. We actually have a whole shelf of simple syrups in our fridge at any given time!

Should I steep the mixture on the counter or in the fridge? Thank you!

It's great either way. Only reason to do it in the fridge though would be if you want it cooler faster. So, totally up to you!

You could sure try it out - you are just cutting out the muddling and straining. Maybe 1/2 cup of juice?
