Blackberry Simple Syrup
Since the blackberries I recently bought were much too tart to eat plain, I decided to use some of them to make this blackberry simple syrup. You can use this simple syrup to make Italian sodas, flavored lemonade, and adult beverages. It’s super simple to make and is great to have on hand.
How to Make Blackberry Simple Syrup
Combine the blackberries, water, sugar, and lemon juice together in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil and mash the berries with a potato masher. Turn the stove off and allow the flavors to mingle for 10 minutes.
Pour the mixture through a very fine strainer into a glass jar. Store sealed with an airtight lid in the refrigerator. Enjoy.
Servings: 1 ½ cups
- 2 cups fresh blackberries
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tsp lemon juice

Excellent easy recipe for blackberry simple! Use in cocktails all year round or as a syrup for crepes!
I just made a batch for some yummy Blackberry Mink Moscow Mules this weekend!
YUM! That sounds delicious.
Any chance you could make this with stevia or some other sweetener other than sugar?
I’ve never tried using anything other than sugar so I’m not sure. If you give it a try, please let me know how it goes!
I use Splenda in my raspberry syrup and will in this recipe too.
