"This syrup can be refrigerated for about a month, but must be used within
two weeks after a bottle is opened." Add several tbsps to glass and fill
with cold water or sparkling water and ice.

Mash the fruits together and let them stand in a warm place for a day.
Strain the juice into a nonreactive pan, and add 4 cups (1 lite) of sugar
to each 2 1/2 cups (625 ml) of liquid; place over low heat or inside a pan
partly filled with simmering water and stir to dissolve the sugar. Cool the
syrup, then skim it, pour it into bottles and cork them tightly.
