Ingredients

1 1/2
cups
sliced fresh ginger
1 1/2
cups
sugar
1/2
cup
fresh lemon juice
1 1/2
(1-liter) bottles club soda or plain seltzer, chilled

Directions

  1. Combine ginger (don't bother to peel it), sugar, and 1 1/2 cups water in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Lower heat and simmer mixture about 15 minutes, or until it reaches the consistency of pancake syrup (you should have about 1 cup syrup). 
  2. Strain syrup and cool to room temperature. Stir in lemon juice.
  3. Place 2 tablespoons syrup in each of eight 8-ounce glasses and fill three quarters full with club soda. Gently stir to blend. Add ice and more club soda or syrup if necessary.
