Food & Wine. June 2007. How fun would it be to throw a Pirate or Carribean themed party and serve this?! :)

- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
- 3⁄4 cup fresh lime juice
- 2 cups dark rum
- 2 cups ice, plus more for serving

- cilantro leaf, for garnish
- In a small saucepan, bring the water, sugar and ginger to a boil.
