To make cardamom simple syrup:
Bring simple syrup to a boil (1 to 1 water and sugar). After simple comes to a boil, pull off heat and add cardamom (2 tbl of ground cardamom per 1 liter water). Stir in cardamom and let steep for 1 hour. Strain through cheese cloth. Shake well before adding to punch.
