Put all the ingredients in a saucepan over low heat. Let the sugar dissolve, then bring to the boil, remove from the heat and steep overnight. Strain, bottle, label and keep in the refrigerator. Dilute a tablespoon or so in a glass of chilled sparkling water for a most refreshing drink. A little poured over ginger or vanilla ice cream is very good too.
