Spiced Strawberry Syrup

Prep Time:

5 minutes

Brew Time:

30 minutes


1 Cup Syrup

This easy-to-make syrup is sweet with a hint of pepper and can be used to make cocktails or as a flavoring in non-alcoholic soda-water drinks.


  • 1 pint fresh strawberries, stems removed
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons pink peppercorns
  • 1 teaspoon rose water, optional


  1. Combine strawberries, sugar, water and peppercorns in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes or until strawberries are falling apart. Let stand for 30 minutes to an hour.
  2. Strain the liquid through a fine sieve to remove solids. Add rose water, if desired.
  3. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
