I was making a simple, sugar syrup when I had a brainstorm. I mixed 1 cup of sugar with 1 cup of water and heated it in the microwave two minutes or until the sugar was dissolved.
I set it aside to cool, and on a whim, dropped a raspberry tea bag in it. I let it steep until it was cool. I ended up with raspberry syrup, similar to the peach syrup sold at Olive Garden.
I had raspberry tea and raspberry coffee using this homemade syrup. But the best drink was the “Raspberry Sprite” I made yesterday. It reminded me of the Cherry /Lemon/Lime slush I used to order at the Diner in Batavia, IA when I was a teenager.
I can’t wait to make syrup out of the other tea bags!
