I used to love a blackberry green tea frappuccino from Starbuck’s. Of course, it’s long since discontinued. I’ve never been able to find a blackberry syrup at a store that came close, so I decided to make my own fresh blackberry syrup!
Unlike the store-bought ones that I thought tasted like weird chemicals, this recipes makes a syrup that tastes like real blackberries – imagine that!
You can make this in the dead of winter with frozen blackberries and even give a few bottles for holiday presents. Also try making lavender syrup, blueberry thyme syrup, and while you’re at it give my butterscotch sauce a try.
This syrup is amazing in iced black or green tea and it makes a nice soda if you added it to plain carbonated water. It’s also perfect with a little gin and lime seltzer. Try it with bourbon and lemonade too.
You could use coconut sugar, stevia or maple syrup (if that’s what you prefer to use as a sweetener). Cane sugar will make it thick and help it keep longer in the fridge. Coconut sugar will give it a bit of a brown sugar flavor that would be great with rum or bourbon.
What’s your favorite fruit flavor for coffee or tea?
