For the syrup, peel and roughly chop mango flesh. Place into a blender or processor and blend until smooth. Transfer to a saucepan. Add sugar and water. Stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil, boil gently 3 minutes. Strain through a fine sieve into a jug. Set aside to cool. Pour into a sterilized bottle. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
