Cherries are a classic garnish and ingredient in a ton of delicious beverage recipes. Learning how to make cherry simple syrup is a cool way to add deeper notes of cherry to your cocktails and mocktails.
While this recipe can be followed if you're using normal cherries or maraschino cherries, normal cherries are a healthier option if you're looking to cut corners with calories. Maraschino cherries are preserved and sweetened and are packed with nearly three times the amount of sugar that normal cherries have.
While you can certainly use maraschino cherries for this recipe (if you do, you're going to have a very sweet syrup on your hands!), using normal cherries allows you to have more control over how sweet your syrup is, which is why we'll be using fresh cherries instead of maraschino.
