Drizzle over ice cream, glaze desserts, pour over fresh fruit or use in hot or cold tea. Mix several tablespoons with seltzer, sparkling water or club soda to make ginger ale and don't forget a splash of lime or orange . Good for cocktails, too, like margaritas, martinis and mojitos. May be stored, refrigerated, for up to 2 weeks. Ginger Simple Syrup (no optionals added) is fabulous in Ginger Peach Margaritas.
