Description

When the blueberry season is winding down, we grab the last of the fresh pints from the farmers market. Making simple syrup couldn’t be easier. That, of course is why it is called simple syrup. Just sugar and water. And if you add in a fruit, just add a bit more water, and cook for 5-10 minutes. There you have it! A quick syrup that you can use to make some pretty gorgeous cocktails!
