How To Make Raspberry Syrup:

In a medium saucepan, combine 1/2 cup of sugar, and 1/2 cup of water. Bring to a light boil and gently stir to dissolve sugar, then put heat to low. Drop in a cup of fresh raspberries and lightly simmer until juice starts extracting, gently pressing on the berries. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let cool for about 10 minutes. Once cooled, strain the syrup through a fine-mesh sieve and discard the solids. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator, up to 1 week.
