Ginger Infused Simple Syrup Recipe
This ginger syrup is a great way to easily add the spiciness and flavor of ginger to cocktails. It can also be combined with club soda for ginger ale or naturally fermented into ginger beer (see recipe elsewhere in book) for a refreshing summer drink. Making your own ginger syrup also allows you to control the spiciness depending on your final planned use of it.
