Ingredients

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.

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
