You need to put one cup of water in a pan and simmer it until it has reduced by half.

If you reduce it too much, you can always add more water.

Just be careful you don't dilute it too much.

Stir gently and cover for 10 minutes. After cooking, leave to stand for a further two minutes. Serve in a glass.

Voila - half a glass of warm water!
