Fresh Herb Syrup

Almost any fresh herb can be quickly and easily turned into a flavored syrup, ideal for adding to cocktails, liqueurs, or even lemonade.


  • 8 oz sugar
  • 8 oz water
  • 1 packed cup of a fresh herb such as mint, sage, or rosemary


  1. Combine the sugar and water in a saucepan or small pot. Heat to a boil, stirring once or twice to dissolve the sugar.
  2. Remove from heat and immediately add the herbs. Stir to fully immerse, cover, and let sit for 30-90 minutes.
  3. Strain out the herbs, squeezing to remove as much liquid as possible. If sediment still remains, strain again through a finer filter.
  4. Bottle the cooled syrup, adding a teaspoon of vodka if desired to increase shelf life. Store in the refrigerator.
