Strawberry Syrup for Drinks

This simple strawberry syrup is perfect stirred into drinks and cocktails!

INGREDIENTS

Strawberries, Lemon Peel & Juice, Water, Sugar, and Salt

Cook strawberries and lemon peel until strawberries soften and release their juices.

Add 10 ounces of water and bring to a boil, stirring frequently.

Continuing boiling until the strawberries are pale and the water has reduced by half.

Strain into a container. Lift and stir the berries but do not press them through the strainer.

Weigh the juice, then add the same amount of sugar into a pot. (8 oz juice = 8 oz sugar)

Stir the juice and sugar together off heat until well combined.

Dip a pastry brush in water and run it around the walls of the pot to dissolve any sugar crystals. This prevents your syrup from recrystalizing!

Bring to a rolling boil. When it boils, set a timer for 1 min. Then remove from heat and let cool.

Store in the fridge and stir into your favorite drinks! Swipe up for the full recipe!
