Tip

Find ginger syrup with other cocktail ingredients or make homemade ginger syrup: Combine ½ cup water, ½ cup granulated sugar and 3 tablespoons chopped fresh ginger in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat; simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat; let stand for 30 minutes. Pour through a fine-mesh strainer into an airtight container (discard solids). Refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
