    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 1/2 cups unbleached cane sugar (preferably organic)
    • 3/4 cup water
    • 1/2 lb fresh gingerroot, washed and sliced into quarter-inch thick rounds
    • 1 large lemon, washed, half sliced into quarter-inch thick rounds and the other half sliced into wheels for serving
    • ice
    • 3/4 cup seltzer water or 3/4 cup sparkling water


    1. 1
      Combine the sugar and water in a medium saucepan set over medium heat. Bring to a boil and use a wooden spoon to stir occasionally until the sugar is completely dissolved, about 2 minutes. Turn off the heat and set the simple syrup aside to cool for 5 minutes.
    2. 2
      In a blender jar, combine the ginger and sliced lemon; add the warm simple syrup and place a lid on the blender. Begin blending on the lowest speed until the ginger and lemon are roughly chopped, about 1 minute. Turn off the blender and let the ginger-lemon syrup steep for 10 minutes. Repeat, this time blending the ginger-lemon syrup on medium speed for 1 minute before turning the blender off and steeping for 10 minutes more.
    3. 3
      Strain the ginger-lemon syrup through a fine-meshed sieve lined with 2 layers of water-moistened cheesecloth, set over a medium bowl, using a rubber spatula to help push the mixture through.
    4. 4
      Fill a glass with ice, add 3/4 cup seltzer water. Top with ¼ cup ginger-lemon syrup and use the spoon to stir. Adjust the flavor with more ginger-lemon syrup or seltzer as needed. Garnish with a lemon wheel.
    5. 5
      The remaining ginger-lemon syrup can be stored in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
