I simmer it for substantially longer to burn off the 
back-of-the-throat-vinegar-bite. The syrup coats the back of a spoon 
like Dayquil when I'm done. I also add handfuls of mint, rather than 
sprigs, and add it as soon as the sugar is fully dissolved. Use cider 
vinegar or wine vinegar-- white vinegar is... really good for cleaning.

    * 6 cups sugar
    * 10 cups water
    * 4 cups wine vinegar
    * pick one:
          o 1 cup mint, dried
          o 2 oz cinnamon
