To make the simple syrup, combine all the ingredients in a sauce pan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and let simmer for 20 minutes. Place a fine mesh strainer over a bowl or a jar; pour the mixture through the strainer. Use a spoon to press any remaining juice into the container. Let cool before using. Keep any extra syrup refrigerated.
