Recipe by Geema
This syrup makes plain pancakes or waffles into a gourmet treat. It's also wonderful drizzled on ice cream, cheesecake, or simple cakes. I've even put a spoonful into a glass of lemonade or club soda which makes a beautiful rosy, refreshing drink.

This worked out perfectly :-) I made this with strawberries, andI served this over pound cake (several times hehe), and used it with crepes. I also drizzled some over some fresh fruit salad, and it was very delightful! I was a bit skeptical about trying it in my lemonade (i love lemonade!!!! I drink it all the time), but when I added it and tried it, I was in love! I dont know if I will ever want to drink regular lemonade again!!! :-D
