More About This Recipe
  • Fresh ginger is slightly spicy, slightly sweet and totally unique. And since the standard simple syrup can be a bit, well, simple, we thought we’d throw in a little ginger to liven things up. After all, isn’t that the reason to have a cocktail in the first place? If you’ve never purchased fresh ginger before, you can find it at any grocery store. Just look for the knobby-looking, branch-like things in the produce section. Once you’ve gotten your hands on some and have mixed up your cocktails, feel free to store any unused syrup in a glass container for up to three weeks. Cocktails aside, this syrup tastes great as a sweetener for iced tea and iced coffee, too. Talk about versatility! Is it just us or has all this talk of cocktails, coffee and iced tea have you parched? Lucky for you, we have a whole gang of thirst-quenching drinks you'll want to try.
