This is how I make Strawberry syrup for cocktails using this syrup. It has a dominant strawberry flavor and is easy to make. This can be stored in the refrigerator with a tight fitting lid for up to 4 weeks. Use it to top ice cream or in your tropical cocktails
- 4 cups simple syrup
- 25 fresh strawberries, sliced
- Combine Simple Syrup and sliced strawberries in a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook until strawberries have cooked down and syrup has a distinct strawberry flavor, about 10 minutes.
- Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. Strain syrup, discard strawberries, transfer to a container with a tight-fitting lid, cover, and refrigerate until ready for use.
I made this and used it to make strawberry lemonade. I used 2 cups of the strawberry syrup and 2 cups lemon juice in a 2 qt. jug then topped it off with water. Very good.
