Unless I misremember, Cariadoc also has a recipe for this in his
Miscellany, for comparison purposes. I've heard of trying this with
fruit-flavored vinegars, as well. One thing that I tried that others seemed
to like is to add a little (*very* little) rose water to the syrup to take
the edge off the vinegar - be careful, 'cause it's easy to put in too much
rose water! Also, exotic mints, such as lemon mint or chocolate mint (yes,
there really is such a thing!) also work well with this.


P.S. - I'll be traveling and away from email for the next week or so
(sob!). If you email me and get no response, it doesn't mean that I'm
ignoring you, I just can't hear you ;-)
