Ingredients

  • 800g frozen raspberries
  • 150g icing sugar
  • Juice 11/2 lemons
  • 500ml tonic water
  • 10 juniper berries, lightly crushed
  • 
6-7 tbsp gin

Method

  1. Put the raspberries, icing sugar and lemon juice in a medium saucepan over a low-medium heat and cook until the raspberries have broken down and are well combined.
  2. Push the raspberry mixture through a sieve into a bowl using the back of a spoon. Rinse out the pan to get rid of any remaining seeds, then pour the purée back into the pan with the tonic water and juniper berries (discard the seeds). Reduce the purée for 15-20 minutes over a medium-high heat, stirring now and then, until syrupy. Add the gin and stir to combine. Leave to cool before packaging into sterilised jars or bottles.

delicious. tips

  1. Use the syrup as a base for cocktails (try in place of the cassis in a kir royale) or to drizzle over pancakes. Leave out 
the gin if you prefer.

  2. Make the syrup up to 2 weeks ahead and keep sealed in the fridge.

  3. Buy bottles from Lakeland, Amazon or charity shops. Make homemade labels out 
of brown card and ribbons and add 
any storage/usage instructions. If you want to spend a bit more money, you could include a bottle of champagne (or sparkling wine) for a kir royale kit.
