Spiced Simple Syrup:

1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 cinnamon stick, broken up
4 allspice pods, whole
2 cloves, whole
1 star anise

Combine the sugar and water in a saucepan. Add the spices. Turn the heat on low and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Remove star anise and turn heat down. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and let sit for at least 30 minutes. Strain, bottle and store in the refrigerator for up to one month.
