How to make the fresh raspberry syrup:

  1. Place the raspberries, sugar, and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium/high heat. Reduce heat to medium and let simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool for 10 minutes. Pour the syrup into a blender and puree until smooth. Run the syrup through a fine mesh sieve and discard seeds. Store syrup in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Syrup will keep for several weeks.
