FOR THE BLACKBERRY-ROSEMARY SIMPLE SYRUP
2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups water
Handful of fresh blackberries (fresh or frozen)
4-5 fresh rosemary sprigs
Combine sugar, water, blackberries and rosemary in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, then simmer over low heat, whisking occasionally, for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool, then pour through a fine mesh strainer, discarding the solids.
Syrup will keep refrigerated for about a month.
Create your own botanical simple syrups with your own blend of edible flowers, herbs and spices to use in cocktails or combined with club soda for refreshing alcohol-free refreshments.
