Method

  1. Put the sugar in a saucepan with 300ml (1/2 pint) water. Gently heat through, stirring to dissolve the sugar.
  2. Stir in the rose water, strawberries and lemon juice and bring to the boil. Simmer for 8 minutes, until the berries are breaking down. Pass through a fine sieve, leaving the berries to drain rather than forcing them through (this creates a clearer syrup). Cool, cover and keep in the fridge for up to a week.
  3. Dilute 1 part syrup with 3-4 parts sparkling water, depending on taste. Serve in tumblers over ice cubes, and garnish with fresh strawberries.
