I've been meaning to make this for yonks, and the Cook the Elves weekend gave me the perfect opportunity! I shaved the ginger with a potato peeler, which gave it more surface and more flavor. Instead of lemon flavoring I used shaved pieces of lemon peel and strained that out with the ginger. I only had liquid stevia around, and used just a few drops. This makes a great syrup to use with club soda, but it also makes a great syrup to add to a chicken stir-fry. Add just about a tablespoon to your stir-fry with lots of scallions and some lemon-grass, and you have a winner!
