In a medium saucepan, combine the water and sugar, bringing them to a boil for approximately 10 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat.
Pour the lilac flowers into the sugar water. For an added touch of colour, you may consider including a few blueberries. Stir the mixture well and let it sit overnight.
Strain the liquid through a piece of muslin, capturing the essence, and carefully pour it into a sterile bottle for storage. Remember to refrigerate the syrup once opened.
