Syrup: Dissolve the sugar in the water over a gentle heat and bring to the boil.

Boil for 2 mins, then allow to cool.

Store it in the fridge until needed.


Orange and Lemonade: 

Juice the fruit and mix with the stock syrup, adding water to taste.

Pour into glasses, add an ice cube or two, garnish with sprigs of fresh mint or lemon balm and serve.
