Does your family like a flavoured coffee every now and again...well you can treat them to this homemade syrup to brighten up their brew! We're going to make raspberry syrup...

What you'll need: 

  • Clean, empty bottles - glass preferably but you can use plastic, just make sure they're not too big. 
  • Ribbon
  • Gift tag
  • 2 cups of water
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1/2 cup fresh raspberries
  • Strainer

What to do: 

  1. In a small pot heat your water and sugar on a low/medium heat - keep stirring it until the sugar has disssolved. Be careful though as this will become very hot. 
  2. Mash up the raspberries in another bowl and then stir them into the syrup you've just heated up. 
  3. Allow this mixture to stand for 3-5 minutes. 
  4. Pour the mixture through a strainer so you don't get any large raspberry pieces stuck in your syrup. 
  5. Then, pour the mixture into your bottles
  6. Finish by tying a little ribbon about the bottle neck and adding a gift tag to say what kind of syrup it is.
