Blueberry Simple Syrup
Simple syrup is one of those recipes you just need up your sleeve. It is great to have on hand to make cocktails, sweeten iced tea or cold brew coffee without worrying about your granulated sugar not dissolving.
What is simple syrup?
Simple syrup is just a mixture of granulated sugar and water. The ratio can vary from recipe to recipe.
All you do is place sugar in a small saucepot with water, bring it to a simmer to make sure the sugar is dissolved. Then let it cool, that’s it!
Every bar has simple syrup on hand, but to make it extra special you can add more ingredients to it – like blueberries!
Fresh blueberries kick a plain simple syrup up a notch making any drink fruity. This recipe is perfect to add to lemonade or iced tea, even blueberry lemonade cocktails!
Plus, the bright fuschia color it adds to drinks makes it extra fun.

How long does blueberry simple syrup last?
This is tricky, I have read simple syrups like this one can last up to one month. However, with the addition of fresh berries, I think it is safer to say use it within a week stored in an airtight container in the fridge.

This is such a great and well written recipe. I just made it today as I have been experimenting with various simple syrups. Until today my favorite has been a honey rosemary simple syrup. However, I think yours is a much better choice for the summer. It was super easy and delicious. I had syrup left after I filled the storage bottle. So I decided to use the small amount left to thicken it for a blueberry lemon compote to go on top of a cheesecake I made yesterday. I added a squeeze of lemon juice and zest. It too was amazing! Thanks for inspiring me.
