Homemade cocktail cherry syrup

This cherry syrup is perfect for your cocktails, mocktails, and over ice cream, cheesecakes, and more! We add star anise and apple for a more complex flavor. You can leave the cherries in the syrup if you like the added texture.

How to make cherry syrup

Making cherry syrup is very easy. Start by cutting each cherry in half using a sharp knife, and remove the pit. Peel and dice the apple. Combine with sugar, vanilla, star anise, and marinate for at least one hour. Strain and boil the juice obtained from marinating and combine in a saucepan with cherry juice, simple syrup, star anise, and water. Add the cherries and apple back to the saucepan and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes.  Filter out the fruit and pour the cheery syrup into a mason jar. Easy!

1. To make the cherry syrup: Place cherries in a large bowl with diced apple, add the sugar, vanilla extract, and star anise. Stir well to combine and cover with a small plate. Marinate for 1 hour or overnight.

2. Strain the cherries and apple with a fine-mesh strainer and reserve the liquid. Pour the liquid into a saucepan and add the water, cherry juice, simple syrup, and the star anise that you used for marinating. Bring to a boil, lower the heat to medium-low. Simmer the cherry syrup for about 15 minutes so it thickens a little.

3. Add the cherries and apple back to the mixture and simmer on low heat for another 5 minutes or until the cherries are softer. The syrup should not be too thick. Skim out the foam and the star anise from the saucepan.

4. Transfer to one or several mason jars, filtering out with a strainer. Use the cherry syrup within 4-5 days. Enjoy! ❤️
