Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 12 oz bag frozen raspberries
  • 1/2 vanilla bean split lengthwise
  • Club soda
  • Half and half optional
  • Additional raspberries for garnish optional

Instructions

Raspberry syrup:

  • In a medium saucepan, combine water, sugar, frozen raspberries, and vanilla bean. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Syrup will darken in color and thicken slightly.
  • Pour the mixture through a fine mesh sieve, pressing lightly on the solids with a rubber spatula. Discard the solids and place the syrup in the refrigerator until chilled.

Assembly:

  • Pour desired amount of syrup into a glass and top with club soda. I like a 1:3 syrup to club soda ratio. If desired, add a splash of half and half. Serve immediately.
