Bring the sugar and water to a boil to make a simple syrup. Stir from time to time to help the sugar dissolve, then let the syrup cool to room temperature.
Pour the syrup over the petals, cover the bowl with a towel or plastic wrap, and store in the fridge for 1 to 3 days.
When ready, strain the syrup through a sieve lined with cheesecloth into a large mason jar or glass bottle.
Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3-4 weeks.
Pour ½ cup of the cordial into a pitcher. Add the juice of a freshly squeezed lemon.
Dilute with 4 cups of cold water or sparkling water.
Adjust the lemon or cordial accordingly to your taste.
Add some ice and a few lemon slices just before serving.
