Homemade Blackberry Soda

Not only is this blackberry syrup delicious, but it's also a great source of antioxidants.

1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
1 cup water
12 oz (about 1 1/2 cups) frozen blackberries or raspberries, thawed

In a medium saucepan combine all of the ingredients and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Reduce heat slightly and simmer 5 to 7 minutes, gently stirring once, if needed, to separate the berries.

Set syrup aside to cool. Strain.

Add a couple of tablespoons of syrup (or to taste) to glass of sparkling water. Stir and serve.
