Usually raspberries are red but legend says that all raspberries were once white. One day, the Nymph Ida tried to pick some wild white raspberries to calm the god Jupiter who was in a rage. While picking the fruits, Ida scratched her finger on the thorny raspberry bush. According to this Roman myth, her blood forever dyed the raspberries a bright red color.
In the Northern hemisphere, raspberries are in season in the summertime. But don’t wait for the season to enjoy fresh, ripe raspberry flavor in all your beverages! Monin Raspberry Syrup is available anytime.
