What to do with this syrup?

While my college student son was home visiting over winter break, I bought him a bottle of raspberry/cranberry juice. He drank a couple of glasses before he left, leaving me with about 3/4 of the juice in the refrigerator, which I wasn't interested in drinking myself.

Rather than dumping it, I wondered what would happen if I boiled it down. Several hours of gentle boiling resulted in about a cup of a thick, intensely-flavored sweet/sour syrup. My next question is: There's got to be an interesting use for this substance - in cooking? baking? Or should I just chalk up the experience as an interesting science experiment and dump the syrup? Any ideas? I'd appreciate your suggestions.
