This simple cherry syrup recipe is great in cocktails, mocktails, milkshakes and more.

Instructions

  1. Add the water and the sugar to a large saucepan and cook on medium heat until the sugar is dissolved; stirring occasionally while it warms.
  2. Once the sugar is dissolved add the cherries and cook on medium high heat for 20 minutes or until the skins start to split. Then reduce the heat to a simmer and cover, cooking on low heat for a further 10 minutes or until they are soft to the touch.
  3. Finish by straining over a medium heat safe bowl using a fine mesh strainer to mash the cherry juice from the cherries. Discard the skins and pits left in the strainer, and then allow the syrup to rest at room temperature before chilling. Seal into an airtight jar and store for up to 2 weeks.
