Notes

If you’re in a hurry you can skip the heating and simmering part and just stir the sugar until it dissolves, but the cooking method helps bring the flavor out of the pulp before you strain it, so you may be missing out!

You can also use filtered water instead of the seltzer water if you’re not into bubbly.
