For the Blackberry Simple Syrup

  1. In a small saucepan, bring the water, sugar, and blackberries to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 15-20 minutes until the berries burst and the mixture thickens slightly, and you reach your desired consistency. 

  2. Strain the contents into a glass jar through a very fine mesh strainer while gently pressing the fruit to extract as much of that delicious juice as possible. Discard the solids.

Your "parts" can easily be measured in ounces, or eyeball based on size of your glass.
