Summer Berry Simple Syrup

Summer is the perfect time for fresh fruit cocktails. During the week we like to prep for the weekend so we can relax and really take advantage of the summer sun! Prepping for fancy cocktails isn’t as hard as you think. Making an easy fresh berry simple syrup in advance is a great way to add an artisanal element to your typical summer cocktail.
