325 ml / 1 ⅓ cups chilled strawberry and sweet cicely syrup
325 ml / 1 ⅓ cups chilled soda water or lemonade if you like something a bit sweeter

Strawberry and sweet cicely syrup
 
150 g / 5 oz fresh strawberries
60 g / 2 oz granulated sugar
Generous handful of fresh sweet Cecily flowers and green seed pods
300 ml / 1 ¼ cup water
 
Roughly crush the strawberries in a bowl, a potato masher works well for this.
Crush the sweet cicely in a pestle and mortar then add it to the strawberries.
 
Place the water and sugar in a pan and heat gently, don’t stir the sugar but swirl the pan a few times until all the sugar is dissolved then leave it alone until it boils.  Boil the syrup for 5 minutes then pour it over the crushed strawberries and sweet cicely. Set the syrup aside in the fridge for 24 hours to infuse then drain into a sterilised bottle and keep in the fridge for up to a week.
 
Fresh sweet cicely is in season with strawberries but if you can’t find any you can add 2 whole star anise to the water and sugar, leave the star anise to infuse with the syrup and strawberries.
